FREE RADICALS IN CHEMISTRY, BIOLOGY AND MEDICINE
"It is a special point in time which is represented by this book: The year 2000 brought together scientists from all over the world on the occasion of the Xth Biennial Meeting of the Society for Free Radical Research International (SFRRI), held at Kyoto, Japan, October 16-20. This marks a millennial milestone on the path around the globe from the first of these meetings, held at Brunel University, United Kingdom, in 1982, when the Society for Free Radical Research was founded. Much development and enormous enthusiasm in many scientific fields characterizes these activities, and the current book gives a wonderful example. The science of free radicals spans from chemistry to biology and medicine, and consequently the book is divided into these three sections. It is satisfying to see that many of the researchers of the scientific forefront in these areas present their perspectives.
The book may also represent a special point in the development of our science: the human genome has practically been resolved in 2000, and it is obvious that future tools will include concepts and techniques based on that added knowledge. It is to be hoped that the insight provided from the dedicated work by the authors of the 54 chapters in this book will be of further use in the years to come when exciting new questions can be tackled with novel methodology.
The Society for Free Radical Research International serves as an umbrella for regional societies in all continents, and readers of this book who are not yet members are invited to look at the website: http://www.sfrr.org
Special thanks go to the Editors, Professors Yoshikawa, Toyokuni, Yamamoto and Naito, who did a superb job in compiling these up-to-date reports on free radicals in chemistry, biology and medicine".
