Book Contents

Medical Sciences is a component of Encyclopedia of Biological, Physiological and Health Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

This 2-volume set contains several chapters, each of size 5000-30000 words, with perspectives, applications and extensive illustrations. It carries state-of-the-art knowledge in the fields of Medical Sciences and is aimed, by virtue of the several applications, at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students, Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers and NGOs.

Boutros-Pierre Mansourian, (MB,ChB,MD,Mphil,PhD,DIC) is a medical graduate from the Universities of Cairo and Lausanne. He pursued his postgraduate training in the University of London (biomedical engineering, neurophysiology, and epidemiology) before joining WHO in 1969, with the Division of Research in Epidemiology and Communication Science. A few years later he was appointed to the Office of Science and Technology, an advisory unit to the Director General. He continued with that office (subsequently renamed Research, Promotion, and Development), serving as its Director from 1994 until retirement (1998). He published original work in a wide range of fields including neurophysiology, medical informatics, systems analysis (transfer function of the vestibulo-ocular control system), and epidemiology (digital filters and pattern recognition techniques in epidemiological variables). He served as Secretary of WHO’s Advisory Committee on Health Research, and participated closely with that body in the formulation of research strategies and policy principles for the Organization during the 1980s and 1990s. In his coordinating roles he has been instrumental in promoting new methodologies such as remote sensing, systems modeling, and artificial intelligence in various WHO programmes. Mansourian is an elected member of the US Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (1968), the Belgian Royal Academy of Overseas Sciences (1998), and the City and Guilds of London Institute (1999). He is also a member of the Royal Society of Medicine andthe New York Academy of Sciences.
