Endogenous and Exogenous Regulation and Control of Physiological Systems
The book focuses on certain "wet" physiological regulators, such as those using endocrine hormones as parametric control substances. Endogenous and Exogenous Regulation and Control of Physiological Systems includes simulations that illustrate model validations and the putative control of cancer and HIV proliferation. It explores novel, untried immunotherapies on the cutting-edge of PRC treatment and explores the latest technologies.
Born in White Plains, NY in 1935, he majored in EE at MIT, graduating in 1956. At the University of Connecticut, he earned a MS in Electrical & Systems Engineering in 1958, and went on to get a PhD in physiology at UCONN in 1964. He joined the UCONN EE faculty in 1964, and in 1965, secured a 5-year graduate training grant from NIGMS/NIH to start one of the first Biological Engineering graduate training programs in New England. Throughout his career Dr. Northrop's research interests have been broad and interdisciplinary: He has worked on insect vision, electrofishing, exogenous closed-loop drug injection systems, mathematical models for the human immune system, biomedical instrumentation including non-invasive blood glucose sensing, and complex systems. He retired from the UCONN ECE faculty in 1997, and has continued to teach grad courses and write textbooks; he has written eight to-date. His current research interest lies in Complexity and Complex Systems. He lives in Chaplin, CT with his wife and a smooth fox terrier.
