This books provides the most up-to-date reviews on current advances in our understanding of the regulation of heat shock protein responses. Key basic scientists and clinical research laboratories from major universities, academic medical centers and pharmaceutical companies around the world have contributed chapters that review present research activity and importantly project this field into the future. For easy readability, the book is sub divided into four sections, including, Section I - HSP and Stress Responses; Section II - Chaperone Functions of HSP; Section III - HSP in Human Diseases; Section IV - Prognosis & Diagnosis of HSP. The book is a must read for researchers involved in biomedical research, drug discovery and design to improve human health.

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.
