Stem Cells – from Hype to Real Hope

This book is a compilation of the bench experience of leading experts from various research labs involved in the cutting edge area of research. The authors describe the use of stem cells both as part of the combinatorial therapeutic intervention approach and as tools (disease model) during drug development, highlighting the shift from a conventional symptomatic treatment strategy to addressing the root cause of the disease process.

The book is a continuum of the previously published book entitled “Stem Cells: from Drug to Drug Discovery” which was published in 2017.

Sin No More: From Abortion to Stem Cells, Understanding Crime, Law, and Morality in America

Read the Authors’ Op-Ed on the Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Sin No More offers a vivid examination of some of the most morally and politically disputed issues of our time: abortion, gay rights, assisted suicide, stem cell research, and legalized gambling. These are moral values issues, all of which are hotly, sometimes violently, contested in America. The authors cover these issues in depth, looking at the nature of efforts to initiate reforms, to define constituencies, to mobilize resources, to frame debates, and to shape public opinion—all in an effort to achieve social change, create, or re-write legislation. Of the issues under scrutiny only legalized gambling has managed to achieve widespread acceptance despite moral qualms from some.

Sin No More seeks to show what these laws and attitudes tell us about Americans’ approach to law and morality, and about our changing conceptions of sin, crime and illegality. Running through each chapter is a central tension: that American attitudes and laws toward these victimless crimes are going through a process of normalization. Despite conservative rhetoric the authors argue that the tide is turning on each of these issues, with all moving toward acceptance, or decriminalization, in society. Each issue is at a different point in terms of this acceptance, and each has traveled different roads to achieve their current status.

Explore Anatomically Correct Models of the Skull and Body

This package contains two anatomically correct models for kids to dissect and explore. Our testers found that the model of the human skull was a challenge to assemble, so kids may need help from an adult to build it. The Human Body Model didn’t require any assembly and is ready to dissect straight out of the box.

Activity Cards and Booklet Teach Science Facts

The fold-up Organ-izer chart keeps track of the dissected body parts as you explore and makes it easier to put the model back together when you’re done. The included 24-page book is a colorful and easy-to-read tour of the wonders of the human brain with fun facts, activities, and quizzes.

The 10 activity cards explain operations you can do on the anatomically correct model with the included surgical tools as well as experiments that use common household items. Each card contains information about an organ, and some include colorful pictures of the real thing. The written materials present detailed scientific information in a way that is easy for kids to understand and interesting and informative for adults.

Bones, Nerves, and Eyeballs Glow in the Dark

Turn off the lights to see the Human Body’s nerves and skeleton glow in the dark. The same eerie effect can be seen with the skull and its squishy eyeballs.
