Immortal: Our Cells, DNA, and Bodies synthesizes what we know about life and death from a genetic, molecular and cellular perspective, demarcates our limits of knowledge, and forces us to ask new questions. Here, award-winning researcher, physician, and NIH Lab Director David Gold Goldman comprehensively examines three keys to understanding the nature and continuity of life: 1) Epigenetic (ephemeral) vs. genetic (durable) transgenerational memory, 2) Life's cellular nature and the ability to make bodies from cells, and 3) The distinction between bodies and persons.
Grounded in recent

Produktbeschreibung
Immortal: Our Cells, DNA, and Bodies synthesizes what we know about life and death from a genetic, molecular and cellular perspective, demarcates our limits of knowledge, and forces us to ask new questions. Here, award-winning researcher, physician, and NIH Lab Director David Gold Goldman comprehensively examines three keys to understanding the nature and continuity of life: 1) Epigenetic (ephemeral) vs. genetic (durable) transgenerational memory, 2) Life's cellular nature and the ability to make bodies from cells, and 3) The distinction between bodies and persons.

Grounded in recent scientific evidence and real-life cases that test our historical understanding of life and death, this book probes the nature of molecular continuity in the face of mortal extinction, encompassing how changes to the DNA code can be both long lasting and transgenerational.

  • Applies recent genetic, molecular and cellular findings to examine the boundaries between living and non-living, and between person and non-person
  • Examines the significance of epigenetic memory and transgenerational inheritance and their role in molecular and precision medicine
  • Written by a thought-leader in genetic and molecular medicine

Autorenporträt
Dr. David Goldman received his B.S. from Yale University in 1974. He received his M.D. degree in 1978 and completed residency training in psychiatry in 1979, both at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Dr. Goldman joined the NIAAA in 1979 and has been chief of the Laboratory of Neurogenetics since 1991. Throughout his career, Dr. Goldman has focused on the identification of genetic factors responsible for inherited differences in behavior. His laboratory is currently exploring the genetics of alcoholism, substance abuse, and related health problems.
