Novel and Re-emerging Respiratory Viral Diseases by Novartis Foundation Novel and Re-emerging Respiratory Viral Diseases, Hardback (April 2008)

The past decade has seen mounting global concern regarding viral outbreaks such as SARS, avian influenza and West Nile virus. In 2004 and 2005, reports of bird-to-human, and possible human-to-human, transmissions of the H5N1 influenza viruses raised fears that these viruses could cause a pandemic on the scale of the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.

Biology of Extracellular Molecular Chaperones by Novartis Foundation Biology of Extracellular Molecular Chaperones, Hardback (March 2008)

The heat shock, or cell stress, response was first identified in the polytene chromosomes of Drosophila. This was later related to the appearance of novel proteins within stressed cells, and the key signal stimulating this appearance was identified as the presence of unfolded proteins within the cell.

Growth Factors and Psychiatric Disorders by Novartis Foundation Growth Factors and Psychiatric Disorders, Hardback (February 2008)

The recent identification of susceptibility genes for schizophrenia, depression and learning and memory dysfunction suggest that psychiatric disorders may be influenced by a small number of genes with multiple actions.
