Inside the Cell - This educational booklet about cell biology speaks directly to readers by vividly describing the processes occurring within their bodies. It also shrinks readers down to 0.5 micrometers so they can explore the cell and its organelles close-up. The booklet features cutting-edge cell biology research and techniques. It includes review questions at the end of each chapter and a glossary. (Publication No. 05-1051, 80 pages) (National Institute of General Medical Sciences)
The Structures of Life - This booklet explains how structural biology provides insight into health and disease and is useful in developing new medications. The booklet features "Student Snapshots" designed to inspire young people to consider careers in biomedical research. It also includes review questions at the end of each chapter. (Publication No. 01-2778, 60 pages) (National Institute of General Medical Sciences)
Chemistry of Health - This science education booklet describes how basic chemistry and biochemistry research can spur a better understanding of human health. The booklet highlights the research of a number of chemists and includes questions at the end of each chapter. (Publication No. 00-4121, 66 pages) (National Institute of General Medical Sciences)
Medicines by Design - This educational booklet about pharmacology explains how scientists unravel the many different ways medicines work in the body and how this information guides the hunt for drugs of the future. Medicines By Design describes the science of pharmacology, discusses how drugs work in the body, and presents some of the latest research developments in the field. (Publication No. 06-474, 54 pages) (National Institute of General Medical Sciences)
A Video Journey Into Nanotechnology - An animated video describing the promise of nanotechnology in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases, including cancer. To view this video you will need Windows Media Player or Apple Quicktime installed on your computer, which you can download for free for either a PC or a Macintosh. A text version of this video is also available. (National Cancer Institute)
Cells, Genes and Protein Machines Coloring Book - This coloring book is for children in grades 1 to 3. It is a story that teaches children that a gene, when active, makes a specific protein in the cells of the human body. When every cell type carries a full set of genes, each different type uses only the subset needed for its specific function. (National Cancer Institute)
Aging Under the Microscope: A Biological Quest - This booklet explains how gerontologists are now able to discern many of the mechanisms by which cells, proteins, tissues, and organ systems cause or react to aging. Includes a glossary. (Publication No. 02-2756) (National Institute on Aging)
Rodbell: Discovering How Cells Respond to Signals (Exhibit) - An online exhibit about the work of Martin Rodbell and his colleagues in discovering a mechanism that transformed our understanding of how cells respond to signals. In a series of pioneering experiments conducted here at the NIH, Rodbell studied hormones--substances which have specific effects on cells' activity. He could not have predicted the broad impact his findings would have. (DeWitt Stetten, Jr., Museum of Medical Research) (Office of NIH History)
