JANE M VANDERKOOI, Ph.D.
Dr. Vanderkooi no longer has an active laboratory. She is concentrating on education.
She recently published a book "Your Inner Engine. An Introductory Course on Human Metabolism." It is available on Kindle. The entire book is also available as pdf files in the attached files.
The book follows how different organs of the body cooperate in processing food that we eat and oxygen that we breathe body in order to maintain life. With an emphasis on human metabolism, the book is written for students interested in health care and for people interested in their own health. All the major metabolic pathways are presented in a way that can be understood without a chemistry background.
