Realism: A Study in Human Anatomy pushes the level of graphical detail available in human anatomy to unprecedented heights. The information presented in this book will be an important step on the way to understanding how the human body is organized and how it functions. Thousands of computer objects, representing the bones and muscles of the human body, were constructed in three dimensions. Image maps with very high resolution were painted onto the objects to give them very realistic color rendition and textures. The resulting anatomical objects within this book are astounding in their appearance and will be extremely useful for teaching and research. This book truly allows the reader to marvel at the beauty of the construction of the human body.

Body by Design defines the basic anatomy and physiology in each of 11 body systems from a creational viewpoint. Every chapter explorers the wonder, beauty, and creation of the human body, giving evidence for creation, while exposing faulty evolutionistic reasoning. Special explorations into each body system look closely at disease aspects, current events, and discoveries, while profiling the classic and contemporary scientists and physicians who have made remarkable breakthrough in studies of the different areas of the human body. Body by Design is an ideal textbook for Christians high school or college students.It utilizes tables, graphs, focus sections, diagrams, and illustrations to provide clear examples and explanations of the ideas presented.Questions at the end of each chapter challenge the student to think through the evidence presented.

Structural Biology in Immunology, Structure/Function of Novel Molecules of Immunologic Importance delivers important information on the structure and functional relationships in novel molecules of immunologic interest. Due to an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the immune system, the approach to the treatment of many immune-mediated diseases, including multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease has been dramatically altered. Furthermore, there is an increasing awareness of the critical role of the immune system in cancer biology. The improved central structure function relationships presented in this book will further enhance our ability to understand what defects in normal individuals can lead to disease. Describes novel/recently discovered immunomodulatory proteins, including antibodies and co-stimulatory or co-inhibitory molecules Emphasizes new biologic and small molecule drug design through the exploration of structure-function relationship Features a collaborative editorial effort, involving clinical immunologists and structural biologists Provides useful and practical insights on developing the necessary links between basic science and clinical therapy in immunology Gives interested parties a bridge to learn about computer modeling and structure based design principles
