August releases to The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection

We are delighted to share with you the latest releases to The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection, which includes talks on the antiviral function of the type I interferon system, the use of gene-drive technology at the population level, telomeres and cardiovascular disease, an introductory talk on evidence-based medicine, and much more.

Also, this month, as part of the Periodic Reports series, Prof. Tejal Desai of the University of California provides an excellent overview of the latest achievements and key challenges in the development of inorganic nanostructured interfaces for therapeutic delivery.
