'Eoin Everard has compiled an impressive text following a logical progression from screening to correcting movement imbalance. His work has very much a practical focus. It will be a regular reference for the variety of corrective strategies that may be used to help promote better functional movement. The domain of functional screening and the prescription of corrective progressions is one that has become popular in not just sport but in general exercise. Eoin's text and logical progressions add to this body of work and I highly recommend this to the clinician and strength and conditioning coach.''Dr. Liam Hennessy (Former Head of Strength and conditioning of Irish Rugby).

At the preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary levels, the needs of learners with high-functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome (HFA/AS) are highly variable. Assessment of an individual child's needs is critically important for planning effective treatment. Treatment, in turn, must address the comprehensive needs of each learner. This is a formidable task that requires tremendous planning and the expertise of many professionals working jointly with parents. Practical Solutions for Educating Young Children with High-Functioning Autism and Asperger Syndrome is designed to help parents and professionals address the unique challenges of these early learners by putting into place various kinds of support and assistance to ensure successful long-term outcomes. Further, to highlight practical applications, in each chapter of the book vignettes of “real” children illustrate the ideas and strategies introduced, culminating in two in-depth case studies that synthesize how the strategies described in the book can be used in combination to maximize success.

A comprehensive look at empirical approaches to molecular discovery, their relationships with rational design, and the future of both Empirical methods of discovery, along with serendipitous and rational design approaches, have played an important role in human history. Searching for Molecular Solutions compares empirical discovery strategies for biologically useful molecules with serendipitous discovery and rational design, while also considering the strengths and limitations of empirical pathways to molecular discovery. Logically arranged, this text examines the different modes of molecular discovery, empha-sizing the historical and ongoing importance of empirical strategies. Along with a broad overview of the subject matter, Searching for Molecular Solutions explores: The differing modes of molecular discovery Biological precedents for evolutionary approaches Directed evolutionary methods and related areas Enzyme evolution and design Functional nucleic acid discovery Antibodies and other recognition molecules General aspects of molecular recognition Small molecule discovery approaches Rational molecular design The interplay between empirical and rational strategies and their ongoing roles in the future of molecular discovery Searching for Molecular Solutions covers several major areas of modern research, development, and practical applications of molecular sciences. This text offers empirical-rational principles of broad relevance to scientists, professionals, and students interested in general aspectsof molecular discovery, as well as the thought processes behind experimental approaches.

In this book, the latest tools available for functional metagenomics research are described.This research enables scientists to directly access the genomes from diverse microbial genomes at one time and study these “metagenomes”. Using the modern tools of genome sequencing and cloning, researchers have now been able to harness this astounding metagenomic diversity to understand and exploit the diverse functions of microorganisms. Leading scientists from around the world demonstrate how these approaches have been applied in many different settings, including aquatic and terrestrial habitats, microbiomes, and many more environments. This is a highly informative and carefully presented book, providing microbiologists with a summary of the latest functional metagenomics literature on all specific habitats.

Bioengineering Innovative Solutions for Cancer bridges the gap between bioengineering and cancer biology. It focuses on a ‘bottom up’ understanding of the links between molecules, cells, tissues, organs, organisms, and health and functions—all within a bioengineering context. Chapters cover the main methods, technologies and devices that could help diagnose cancer sooner (e.g., ultrasensitive imaging and sensing technologies) and helpful treatments (e.g., new, more targeted therapies). The book takes an interdisciplinary approach that is ideal for those who need the latest information on design techniques and devices that help treat cancer using new, more targeted therapies. By covering the many different ways engineers can deliver innovative solutions to tackle cancer, this book is a valuable read for researchers who have an ambition to make an impact on people’s life in either an academic or industrial setting. Connects bioengineering and cancer biology, providing information on sensors, imaging, therapies and in-vitro models Presents the most comprehensive coverage in the field of cancer engineering to date Provides an academic introduction to (molecular) bioengineering for students, regardless of scientific background (math's, physics, chemistry, biology) Highlights the unmet medical needs for bioengineers and the main technological breakthroughs to cancer biologists
