Reese Aptor’s lifelong interest has been in the chemistry of living cells. By training, Reese is a physician, and at heart, she remains a clinician. If the ideas described here create new ways of approaching disease, it would be worth all the time and effort that has gone into producing this work.
Reese is a regular contributor to Life’s Chemistry Press with a series of articles and books that explains those details. This work developed over years, with a central goal of having the biochemistry and physiology of life make sense to many audiences. In writing those articles, concepts have been drawn from multiple disciplines. Any novelty in the material is due to a resynthesis of those elements.
