Description

First published in 1943, Vitamins and Hormones is the longest-running serial published by Academic Press. In the early days of the serial, the subjects of vitamins and hormones were quite distinct. Now covered in this serial is the field of hormone action, vitamin action, X-ray crystal structure, physiology, and enzyme mechanisms. In particular, recently discovered hormones and hormone-like agents are reviewed. Sometimes the topic of a volume will center on a clinical disorder that encompasses hormonal as well as related physiological agents; recent examples are the titles: "Obesity", "Anorexia", "Endocrine Disrupters" and "Hormones and Breast Cancer", to name a few. Equal attention is given to recent advances in basic research as typified by the titles: "Stem Cell Regulators", "Hedgehog Signaling", "Sleep Hormones" and "Nitric Oxide". Vitamins and Hormones will continue to publish cutting-edge reviews of interest to endocrinologists, biochemists, nutritionists, pharmacologists, cell biologists, and molecular biologists and, especially, clinicians who have specialized practices. Others interested in the structure and function of biologically active molecules like hormones and vitamins will, as always, turn to this series for comprehensive reviews by leading contributors to this and related disciplines.

Key Features

  • The volumes in this series on vitamins and hormones focus on the newest aspects of hormone action in connection with diseases
  • Many of the volumes in this series lay the groundwork for the focus of new chemotherapeutic targets
  • The coverage of basic science is represented by reviews on emerging areas in hormone action, cellular regulators and signaling pathways

Readership

Intense basic science to the molecular and physiological aspects of a particular disease state. Basic scientists and clinicians interested in the focus of a given volume

About the Serial Editors

Gerald Litwack Serial Editor

Dr. Gerald Litwack obtained M.S. and PhD degrees from the University of Wisconsin Department of Biochemistry and remained there for a brief time as a Lecturer on Enzymes. Then he entered the Biochemical Institute of the Sorbonne as a Fellow of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. He next moved to Rutgers University as an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and later as Associate Professor of biochemistry at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Medicine. After four years he moved to the Temple University School of Medicine as Professor of Biochemistry and Deputy Director of the Fels Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Biology, soon after, becoming the Laura H. Carnell Professor. Subsequently he was appointed chair of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at the Jefferson Medical College as well as Vice Dean for Research and Deputy Director of the Jefferson Cancer Institute and Director of the Institute for Apoptosis. Following the move of his family, he became a Visiting Scholar at the Department of Biological Chemistry of the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and then became the Founding Chair of the Department of Basic Sciences at the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, becoming Professor of Molecular and Cellular Medicine and Associate Director of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at the Texas A&M Health Science Center as his final position. During his career he was a visiting scientist at the University of California, San Francisco and Berkeley, Courtauld Institute of Biochemistry, London and the Wistar Institute. He was appointed Emeritus Professor and/or Chair at Rutgers University, Thomas Jefferson University and the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine. He has published more than 300 scientific papers, authored three textbooks and edited more than sixty-five books. Currently he lives with his family and continues his authorship and editorial work in Los Angeles.
