Description

The Harvey Society was founded in 1905 by thirteen New York City scientists and physicians with the purpose of forging a closer relationship between the purely practical side of medicine and the results of laboratory investigation. The Society disseminates scientific knowledge in selected areas of anatomy, physiology, pathology, bacteriology, pharmacology, and physiological and pathological chemistry through public lectures, which are published annually. Topics covered in this series edition include sensing and signaling DNA damage; mammalian stem cells; nature, nurture, and genetic scripts; P53, mdm2, and cancer; viral membrane fusion and its inhibition; and genomics approaches to photoreceptor development and disease.
