Pandemics by P. C Doherty( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From HIV to H1N1, pandemics pose one of the greatest threats to global health in the twenty-first century. Defined as epidemics of infectious disease across large geographic areas, pandemics can disseminate globally with incredible speed as humans and goods move faster than ever before. While restricted travel, quarantine, vaccines, drugs, and education can reduce the severity of many outbreaks, factors such as global warming, population density, and antibiotic resistance will complicate our ability to fight disease. Respiratory infections like influenza and SARS spread quickly as a consequence of modern, mass air travel, while unsafe health practices promote the spread of viruses like HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C. In Pandemics: What Everyone Needs to Know, Nobel Prize-winning immunologist Peter Doherty addresses the history of pandemics and the ones that persist today, what promotes global spread, types of pathogens and the level of threat they pose, as well as how to combat outbreaks and mitigate their effects"--Provided by publisher
Their fate is our fate : how birds foretell threats to our health and our world by P. C Doherty( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the heart of this book by Nobel Prize{u2013}winning immunologist and professor Peter Doherty is this striking observation: Birds detect danger to our health and the environment before we do. Following a diverse cast of bird species around the world{u2014}from tufted puffins in Puget Sound to griffon vultures in India, pigeons in East Asia, and wedge-tailed shearwaters off the islands of Australia{u2019}s Great Barrier Reef{u2014}Doherty illuminates birds{u2019} role as an early warning system for threats to the health of our planet and our own well-being. Their Fate Is Our Fate is an impassioned call not only to attention but to action. As ?citizen scientists? we can collect data, vital to cutting-edge research, that depends on the birds that are all around us. Armed with our observations, scientists will continue to uncover new ways to glimpse our future in birds{u2014}and to affirm how, truly, their fate is our fate
The knowledge wars by P. C Doherty( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate scientists have warned that we need to change our behaviour in ways that are both inconvenient and threaten established power. The result is a polarising division in society and a sustained attack on the researchers and their findings. In The Knowledge Wars, Nobel prize winner Peter Doherty makes a passionate case for citizens to become informed and evaluate the facts of the debate for themselves and provides practical guidance on how to take action. The Knowledge Wars challenges our assumptions and encourages us to take an evidence-based view of the world. There's something here to offend everybody!

So gewinnt man den Nobelpreis : das Geheimnis guter Wissenschaft by P. C Doherty( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in German and English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV> Peter Doherty recounts his unlikely path to becoming a Nobel Laureate, revealing how his nonconformist upbringing, sense of being an outsider, and search for a different perspective have shaped his life and work. Beginning with his humble origins in Australia, Doherty shares his early interests and describes his award-winning, influential work with Rolf Zinkernagel on T-cells and the nature of immune defense. In prose that is amusing and astute, Doherty offers a rare insider's look at the realities of being a research scientist. He lucidly explains his own scientific work and the selection, funding, and organization of research projects; the major problems science hopes to solve; and the rewards of a career in scientific research. For Doherty, science plays an important role in improving the world, and he argues that scientists need to do a better job of making their work more accessible to the public. He concludes with tips on how to win a Nobel Prize, including advice on being persistent, generous, and culturally aware. </DIV>
