It takes the reader to laboratories whose research offers new hope for responding to the symptoms of disease with earlier treatment and for attacking the causes of illness with new cures and methods of prevention. For the first time, we can see the effect of therapies upon cancerous cells; we can see the effect of stimuli on the brain; we can see an HIV virus invade a cell.
