Download In Vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging by Eric T. Ahrens (Eds.) PDF

By Eric T. Ahrens (Eds.)

Lately there was an explosive enlargement of latest imaging methodologies which are in a position to visualizing particular populations of cells and molecular occasions in vivo. very important imaging complements our skill to review animal versions of human improvement and ailment, reminiscent of cancers, heart problems, diabetes, and Alzheimer's. additionally, non-invasive imaging may possibly eventually be precious for tracking new generations of scientific molecular and mobile therapeutics, resembling these using viral vectors and stem cells. those new services were facilitated via the improvement of recent imaging probes or reagents that concentrate on particular telephone varieties, are chemically attentive to body structure, or are attentive to the presence of particular molecules, similar to nucleic acids or enzymes. This quantity presents an advent to a couple of the main interesting tools and functions of rising non-invasive imaging applied sciences utilizing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and numerous biophotonic ways. Highlighted, are fresh advancements in reagent layout that impart special skills to those imaging modalities to clarify organic techniques in vivo. * comprises nine chapters by means of specialist researchers within the box of imaging* Introduces new equipment and purposes of non-invasive imaging applied sciences* Covers ermerging themes in imaging similar to in vivo mobile melanoma cells, imaging of autoimmune illnesses, and maganetic resonance imaging

Flüchten oder Bleiben? Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe und Ressourcen von Emigranten im Nationalsozialismus

Sylke Bartmann zeigt anhand der Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe von Emigranten unterschiedliche Umgehensweisen mit dem Nationalsozialismus und damit verbundene Repressalien und Bedrohungen auf. Der Fokus richtet sich dabei auf den Einzelnen als Akteur und Gestalter seines eigenen Lebens. Es wird die Frage beantwortet, inwieweit in den Prozessen der Biographisierung Ressourcen zum Ausdruck kommen, die das Leben im Nationalsozialismus (weiterhin) als zusammenhängend und sinnvoll erscheinen lassen - auch wenn dem einzelnen Menschen die Welt manchmal sinnentleert gegenüberzustehen scheint.
