Raphael C. Lee, Florin Despa, Kimm J. Hamann. Cell Injury - Mechanisms, Responses and Repair. The New York Academy of Sciences, 2005.

Abstract: The study of cell injury and repair crosses the boundary between the physical and biological sciences: the people who study the inner workings of cells tend to be chemists, rather than biologists. Several years ago, researchers from the University of Chicago and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Lab joined together to create the Program for Research in Molecular Repair to understand what happens when cells are injured, and to find ways to repair them.
In 2004, the University of Chicago began a year-long seminar series that featured experts on cell injury and repair. The speakers were drawn from disciplines ranging from physics to plastic surgery. Some described how cells naturally repair themselves. Others discussed their discoveries about how cells respond to injuries such as burns, electric shock, and freezing. Some used a broad definition of cell injury to discuss the damage that accrues during diseases such as diabetes. The proceedings of these seminars are published in Cell Injury: Mechanisms, Responses, and Repair, Volume 1066 of the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, edited by Lee and two University of Chicago colleagues, Florin Despa and Kimm J. Hamann.
