ISBN 978-1-58829-973-4. Biomedicine ... Content Inside: Handbook of Modern Biophysics Series Editor: Thomas Jue, phd Thomas Jue Editor Jue Editor Handbook of Modern Biophysics brings current biophysics topics into focus, so that biology, medical, engineering, mathematics, and physical-science students or researchers can learn fundamental concepts and the application of new techniques in addressing biomedical challenges. Chapters explicate the conceptual framework of the physics formalism and illustrate the biomedical applications. With the addition of problem sets, guides to further study, and references, the interested reader can continue to explore independently the ideas presented. Volume I Fundamental Concepts in Biophysics Edited by Thomas Jue, phd In Fundamental Concepts in Biophysics, prominent authors have established a foundation for the study of biophysics related to the following topics: Mathematical Methods in Biophysics Quantum Mechanics Basic to Biophysical Methods Computational Modeling of ReceptorLigand Binding and Cellular Signaling Processes Fluorescence Spectroscopy Electrophysiological Measurements of Membrane Proteins Single-Particle Tracking NMR Measurement of Biomolecule Diffusion Fundamental Concepts in Biophysics Volume 1 Fundamental Concepts in Biophysics About the Editor Thomas Jue is a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine at the University of California Davis. He is an internationally recognized expert in developing and applying magnetic resonance techniques to study animal as well as human physiology in vivo and has published extensively in the field of magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging, near-infrared spectroscopy, bioenergetics, cardiovascular regulation, exercise, and marine biology. Over the past several years, he has led the way as a Chair of the Biophysics Graduate Group Program to establish attractive but scholarly approaches to educate graduate students with a balance of physical-science/mathematics formalism and biomedical perspective in order to promote interest at the interface of physical science, engineering, mathematics, biology, and medicine.
Thomas Jue: A hazy shade of freedomThomas Jue, Ph.D is a professor of biochemistry and molecular medicine at UC Davis School of Medicine.He recently completed a Philip Morris-funded project to develop non-invasive magnetic resonance techniques to measure tissue and vascular oxygen levels.
Even if they don't know it, sensory science is something that most people are familiar with from watching television commercials.The good wife who rubs towels on each cheek after they were washed with different detergents to see which is softer; the salesman who finds that rinsing with a particular mouthwash makes his mouth sparkle; the young kid who delights in the voluble crunch from eating one brand of potato chip-all are demonstrations and symbols of sensory science at work.Even the last accomplishment on this list had a tobacco connection: The short list of corporate members of the Association of Chemoreception Sciences included Brown & Williamson, Philip Morris and R.J. Reynolds.Even before Pangborn's death, R.J. Reynold's Perfetti attempted to generate additional projects with the other UC Davis sensory scientist with whom he served on the thesis committees: Ann Noble of the Viticulture & Enology Department.On January 5, 1990, he sent a memo to his bosses to fund a graduate student under Noble's direction for the development of a "Tobacco Aroma Wheel."Even as the relationship with R.J. Reynolds was shifting in the wake of Pangborn's passing, relationships with Philip Morris were being developed by another departmental sensory scientist, Michael O'Mahony.Even Thomas Jue, a UC Davis biochemistry professor who has received Philip Morris research funding and has been a vocal opponent of any ban, pauses when informed of some of the sensory scientists' work for the tobacco industry.
Thomas Jue, a biochemistry professor at the UC Davis medical school, says the research funding he gets from Philip Morris is the cigarette maker's "penance.""I can do more good by getting the money than refusing the money," said Jue, who is developing new ways to measure oxygen levels in blood.
