Infanticide as sexual conflict: coevolution of male strategies and female counterstrategies.
New Brunswick, United States. In Cold Spring Harb Perspect Biol, Jun 2015
These potential counterstrategies span diverse biological systems, ranging from sexual behavior (e.g., polyandrous mating), to physiology (e.g., the Bruce effect), to individual behavior (e.g., maternal aggression), to social strategies (e.g., association with coalitionary defenders of either sex).
Recognition of the deteriorating patient.

Blood transfusion at the time of the First World War--practice and promise at the birth of transfusion medicine.
Southampton, United Kingdom. In Transfus Med, 2014
Transfusion practice lay at the heart of resuscitation, and although direct transfusion from donor to recipient was still used, Geoffrey Keynes from Britain, Oswald Robertson from America and his namesake Lawrence Bruce Robertson from Canada, developed methods for indirect transfusion from donor to recipient by storing blood in bottles and also blood-banking that laid the foundation of modern transfusion medicine.
The history of Toll-like receptors - redefining innate immunity.
Dublin, Ireland. In Nat Rev Immunol, 2013
The discovery of Toll-like receptors (TLRs) was an important event for immunology research and was recognized as such with the awarding of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Jules Hoffmann and Bruce Beutler, who, together with Ralph Steinman, the third winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize and the person who discovered the dendritic cell, were pioneers in the field of innate immunity.
Lithium insertion in nanostructured TiO(2)(B) architectures.
Austin, United States. In Acc Chem Res, 2013
This is due to the material's stability over multiple cycles, safer lithiation potential relative to graphite, reasonable capacity, high rate capability, nontoxicity, and low cost (Bruce, P. G.; Scrosati, B.; Tarascon, J.-M.
A Bruce effect in wild geladas.
Ann Arbor, United States. In Science, 2012
Although laboratory support abounds, direct evidence for a Bruce effect under natural conditions is lacking.
Bridging innate and adaptive immunity.
Bethesda, United States. In Cell, 2012
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for 2011 to Jules Hoffmann, Bruce Beutler, and the late Ralph Steinman recognizes accomplishments in understanding and unifying the two strands of immunology, the evolutionarily ancient innate immune response and modern adaptive immunity.
