Clinical research is the tip of the spear for innovation and central in the development of improving safety and efficacy for patient centric care. Unfortunately, clinical research in academic practices is bogged down by inefficiency and infrequent regulatory oversight, thus leaving physicians unable to meet the clinical and research needs for driving innovation. Private practice is a valid practice cohort that can effectively, reliably, and reproducibly perform study related activities, for both FDA and non-FDA regulated studies, both industry-sponsored or investigator-initiated.Clinical Research in Private Practice fills a gap and provides a playbook for how to incorporate clinical research in a validated, safe, and compliant manner, allowing a needed meaningful contribution to the medical space, while concurrently maintaining fiduciary responsibility. Written for physicians by physicians.

From Agricultural Analytics to Implementation presents carefully selected entries to the 2016 Syngenta Crop Challenge in Analytics (sponsored by INFORMS) designed to determine how a farmer can make seed variety decisions that reliably reduce risk and increase yield. With a focus on cutting-edge approaches to the quickly growing field of on precision and digital agriculture From Agricultural Analytics to Implementation provides an integrated and comprehensive treatment on recent research advancements in data-driven variety prediction and placement analytics in an effort to provide more personalized and smarter variety placement decision for growers. Emphasizing data and agriculture analytics from an operational management and statistical perspective, the book details how analytical methods and tools can be utilized to enhance variety prediction, placement and operational efficiency. It further provides a guide to practitioners focused on precision and digital agriculture and on-farm variety placement on innovative operations research and data analytic approaches to help drive from ideas to execution. Analytics used in this way provides "full lifecycle support" for on on-farm variety placement and helps during all stages of management decision-making and execution. The use cases presented in the book enables the effective interplay of diverse analytical approaches to leverage analytics for competitive advantage

This volume on Brainstem consolidates research for a complete understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the Brainstem and how it affects assorted other systems in the body. The brainstem impacts breathing, the gastrointestinal system, the cardiac system, mood, pain, wakefulness, consciousness, and sleep. Pathologies can impact vision, motor control, hearing, balance, blood supply and is particularly involved in neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s. The volume discusses how the brainstem operates in full health, pathologies associated with the brainstem and their impact, methods for monitoring brainstem function, and diagnosis and treatment of brainstem disorders. Monitoring and intervention is reliant on technologies to assess function. This volume will include CT, MRI, USG, angiography, BERA, and functional imaging.

Peripheral nerve disorders are among the most common neurological problems that clinicians face, yet few therapies and interventions are available to stop or reverse the damage associated with them. The newly revised, Axon Regrowth: The Neurobiology of Nerve and Axon Regeneration, originally published in 2008, is fully revised and refocuses on the central nervous system axon regeneration to emphasize the commonalities and differences with peripheral nerve regeneration. This book reviews the substantial problems of axon and nerve regeneration, including molecular mechanisms and what approaches can be used to address it experimentally. Both researchers and clinicians alike will consider this a valuable resource.

Fully revised to include the latest scientific developments, "Climate Change and Agricultural Ecosystems, 2nd edition" continues to provide vital insights into the complex and dynamic relationship between climate, agriculture, soil and plants. Building on its proven value in guiding real-world application as well as inspiring further research, this new edition includes new insights and practices. Agricultural ecosystems are highly dependent on weather and climate for the production of necessary foods to sustain human life. Despite leading cutting-edge tools and technologies for developing improved varieties, genetically modified organisms, and irrigation systems, climate change is still a major constraint to agricultural productivity. It takes years to assess the impacts of climate change and vulnerability to it and to prepare proper countermeasures against it. Developing countermeasures drawn based on scientific diagnosis and assessment of the impacts of climate change on agriculture are essential in establishing the vision and administrative policies of future agriculture. "Climate Change and Agricultural Ecosystems" focuses on recent research and updates on interactions between agriculture, ecosystems, environment, and climate change bringing together ideas and innovations of the latest scientific findings on climate change and enriched by renowned researchers knowledge and experience in this field. It reflects the importance of acting now on climate change: to eliminate hunger; to enable the agriculture sectors to adapt to climate change.
