He was visiting scientist in Seattle from 1983 to 1986, where he collaborated with Jack W. Singer, studying the generation of stem cells in long-term bone marrow cultures. In 2000 and 2001, he was visiting scientist in Princeton, where he collaborated with Kateri Moore and Ihor Lemischka, studying the transcriptome of fetal liver stromal cells. He has contributed to more than 120 original publications and to several book chapters.
We are signed up with aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus.
These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a "patron-driven demand" model.
