Click Here to Purchase: The Fibrinogen Memoirs: Journeys of a Clot Doctor by Michael W. Mosesson on IPBooks.net.
Dr Michael Mosesson’s book, describing his vast contributions to the field of fibrinogen research, is full of rich and often very funny anecdotes of encounters during his « Journeys of a Clot Doctor ». His seminal publications on the structure and function of fibrinogen, a fascinating (and beautiful!) molecule, and how it is converted to fibrin, have inspired many scientists in the field, including me. Readers who have had the chance to discuss and debate with “Mike” at one of the Fibrinogen Workshops organised by the International Fibrinogen Research Society, the founding of which is described in a very entertaining chapter of this book, will immediately recognize his wit and style. All readers will appreciate the life-time dedication it takes to answer certain research questions and generate others which sometimes have to be handed over to the next generation of passionate scientists.
