The Beautiful Cure, Professor Daniel M. Davis
The immune system holds the key to human health. In The Beautiful Cure, leading immunologist Professor Daniel Davis describes the scientific quest to understand how it works – and how it is affected by stress, sleep, age and our state of mind – and explains how this knowledge is now unlocking a revolutionary new approach to medicine and well-being.
Within the last few years painstaking research has resulted in major advances in our understanding of the immune system. And we have found ways to harness these natural defences to create breakthrough drugs that help us fight cancer, diabetes, arthritis and many age-related diseases.
Daniel M. Davis is Professor of Immunology at the University of Manchester. His research, using super-resolution microscopy to study immune cell biology, was listed in Discover magazine as one of the top 100 breakthroughs of the year. His first book, The Compatibility Gene, was described by Bill Bryson in the Guardian’s Books of the Year as ‘elegantly written and unexpectedly gripping’. His second book, The Beautiful Cure, has been described by Stephen Fry as ‘One of those books that makes you look at everything human in a new, challenging and thrilling way’.
Davis is a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Science and the author of over 120 academic papers, collectively cited over 11,000 times, including articles in Nature, Science and Scientific American.
