Harvey Lectures Series
The Harvey Society was founded in 1905 by thirteen New York 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 distributes scientific knowledge in selected areas of anatomy, physiology, pathology, bacteriology, pharmacology, and physiological and pathological chemistry through public lectures, which are published annually.
Series 95, 1999-2000 covers themes in quantitative genetic variations and essential hypertension, programmed cell death and the regulation of homeostasis, from reverse transcriptase to gene therapy, transcriptional control of Drosophila embryogenesis, sex and death of a worm, leptin and the regulation of body weight, and the mouse as a gene discovery tool in the modern genome era.
