F1000 – Database

A new  Database  F1000 is now available for all NTU staffs and students.

Faculty of 1000 (F1000) identifies and recommends the important articles in biomedical research publications. Articles are selected by a peer-nominated global ‘Faculty’ of the  leading scientists and clinicians who then rate them and explain their importance.

Launched in 2002, F1000 was conceived as a collaboration of 1000 international Faculty Members.

Faculty Members and article recommendations are organized into over 40 Faculties (subjects), which are further subdivided into over 300 Sections.

New Title for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Title: Biomedical engineering : bridging medicine and technology
Author: Saltzman, W. Mark.
Call number: R856.S179
Availability: Click here

Synopsis:
The book presents the basic science knowledge used by biomedical engineers at a level accessible to all students and illustrates the first steps in applying this knowledge to solve problems in human medicine. Biomedical engineering now encompasses a range of fields of specialization including bioinstrumentation, bioimaging, biomechanics, biomaterials, and biomolecular engineering. This introduction to bioengineering assembles foundational resources from molecular and cellular biology and physiology and relates them to various sub-specialties of biomedical engineering. The first two parts of the book present basic information in molecular/cellular biology and human physiology; quantitative concepts are stressed in these sections. Comprehension of these basic life science principles provides the context in which biomedical engineers interact. The third part of the book introduces the sub-specialties in biomedical engineering, and emphasizes – through examples and profiles of people in the field – the types of problems biomedical engineers solve.[Publisher Info]

Nanotechnology and advances in medicine

Title:  Nanotechnology and advances in medicine
Author:  Maysaa El Sayed Zaki
Call number: T74.7 N186nad
Availability:  Click here

Synopsis:
Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. This covers both current work and concepts that are more advanced. Biomedical nanotechnology, bio-nanotechnology and nanomedicine are used to describe this hybrid field. The pace of new discoveries in biotechnology and health care and even the appearance of whole new fields of endeavour in recent years have made for an exciting and challenging time for pharmacists. This book examines current research in the study of nanotechnology and its role in the diagnosis and treatment of various fields of medicine.[As taken from Amazon]

New Title for Bioengineering

Title: Basics of biomedical ultrasound for engineers
Editor: Haim Azhari
Call number: R857.U48A994
Availability: Click here

Summary:
In this introduction to biomedical ultrasound, undergraduate and gradate engineering students, academic and research engineers, and physicians and researchers in biomedical disciplines will find common applications of biomedical ultrasound explained from an engineering point of view. Early chapters give a general description of waves and cover waves in a one-dimensional medium, ultrasonic waves in fluids, and propagation of acoustic waves in solid materials. Later chapters cover attenuation and dispersion, reflection and transmission, acoustic lenses and mirrors, and transducers and acoustic fields. Application chapters describe uses of ultrasonic imaging such as the pulse-echo technique, Doppler imaging techniques, and safety and therapeutic ultrasound applications. [As taken from book cover]

New Title for Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Title:
Multiple testing problems in pharmaceutical statistics
Author: Alex Dmitrienko, Ajit C. Tamhane, Frank Bretz

Call number: RM301.27.M961

Availability: Click here

Synopsis:

Primarily aimed at biostatisticians performing pre-clinical and clinical research, this volume outlines statistical methods for drug testing in the context of multiple comparison research. It also explains how to implement much of the pharmaceutical research with statistical software, including SAS and R, and offers code and data sets on the accompanying website.
