About this book


The book Heat Shock Proteins in Veterinary Medicine and Sciences provides the most comprehensive
review on contemporary knowledge on the role of heat shock proteins in veterinary medicine and
sciences. Using an integrative approach to understanding heat shock protein physiology, the contributors
provide a synopsis of novel mechanisms by which HSP are involved in the regulation of normal
physiological and pathophysiological conditions. Key basic and clinical research laboratories from major
universities and veterinary hospitals around the world contribute chapters that review present research
activity and importantly project the field into the future. The book is a must read for veterinary doctors,
researchers, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students in the fields of Veterinary Medicine, Animal
Physiology, Animal Husbandry, Biotechnology, Molecular Medicine, Microbiology and Pathology.

About the editors

Professor Dr. Alexzander A. A. Asea is a highly innovative and accomplished world-renowned clinical and basic research scientist and visionary executive leader who have exceptional experience spearheading strategic planning, clinical and basic science research, training, education and commercialization initiatives within top-ranked hospitals and academic biomedical institutes. Prof. Asea’s initial findings studying the effects of Hsp72 on human monocytes lead to the proposal of a novel paradigm; that Hsp72 previously known to be an intracellular molecular chaperone, can be found in the extracellular milieu where it has regulatory effects on immunocompetent cells. Prof. Asea has authored over 255 scientific publications including peer-reviewed articles, reviews, books, book chapters, editorials and news headliners in a wide range of biomedical related disciplines. He has also successfully obtained grant funding from the federal government, industry, philanthropic organizations, local business and community groups. Prof. Asea is the Series Editor of the widely successful book series Heat Shock Proteins (Springer Nature Publications) and is on the Editorial Board Member of 13 scientific peer reviewed other journals. Currently, Prof. Asea is at The University Of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA.
