Der Entschluß, ein Buch über den Ursprung (bzw. die Ursprünge) des - bens zu verfassen, setzt voraus, daß man von diesem wissenschaftlichen „großen Problem“ noch immer fasziniert ist, wenn auch die erste intensive Beschäftigung mit dieser Thematik mehr als drei Jahrzehnte zurückliegt. Experimentelle Arbeiten über Protein-Modellsubstanzen unter den si- lierten Bedingungen der Urerde führten zur Entstehung eines der ersten deutschsprachigen Bücher über „Chemische und Molekulare Evolution“, das ich mit Klaus Dose (Mainz), von dem auch die Initiative ausging, v- faßte. Die enorme Erweiterung und Differenzierung dieses Forschungsgebietes führte in den letzten Jahren zur Gründung eines neuen, interdisziplinären Wissenschaftszweiges, der „Exo-/Astrobiologie“. Sie verfolgt das we- gespannte, ehrgeizige Ziel, das Phänomen „Leben“ im gesamten Kosmos zu erforschen. In den folgenden Kapiteln wird ein Überblick über die vielfältigen - mühungen von Wissenschaftlern gegeben, Antworten auf die Frage nach dem „Woher“ des Lebens zu finden. Dabei ist über Erfolge, aber auch Mißerfolge sowie über Diskussionen und gelegentlich harte Kontroversen zu berichten. Es soll aber auch deutlich dargestellt werden, wie viele of- ne Fragen und ungeklärte Rätsel noch auf eine Antwort warten. Es sind - ren mehr, als gern eingestanden wird! – Die Fülle an wissenschaftlichen Publikationen macht es leider unmöglich, über alle Bereiche dieses int- disziplinär ausgerichteten Teilgebietes der Naturwissenschaften mit gl- cher Ausführlichkeit zu berichten.

Scientific knowledge may be communicated in the written form or orally. Written communication (medical writing) usually takes the form of original or research papers, which appear in scientific journals. Oral communication in medicine is usually made during a meeting and is often called a free paper. Oral medical communication abides by certain rules. The objectives of this book are to examine and discuss these rules. Oral medical communication involves taking the floor to speak, whether it be as a speaker, the person who gives the talk in front of an audience, or as part of the audience, who can then ask questions or make comments. The go between is called the moderator. Some forms of oral communication are more specific to meetings with a large audience: free papers, panel discussions or roundtables, posters, and videos. Others are more characteristic of smaller audiences: hospital staff meet ings, or literature update sessions. Educational talks have a didactic goal and resemble a lecture, for instance, in a course, or are closer to a case report, when they are given during a small class get-together.

How do I chose my material and prepare it for a conference presentation? How can I prepare effective conference aids? How can I overcome my nerves? How can I prepare and present effective posters for poster presentations? As with the other titles in the Success in Research series, this guide takes a hands-on approach and includes checklists, top tips, exercises and examples to help you remember what you have read and put it immediately to work! The Success in Research series, from Cindy Becker and Pam Denicolo, provides short, authoritative and accessible guides on key areas of professional and research development. Avoiding jargon and cutting to the chase of what you really need to know, these practical and supportive books cover a range of areas from presenting research to achieving impact, and from publishing journal articles to developing proposals. They are essential reading for any student or researcher interested in developing their skills and broadening their professional and methodological knowledge in an academic context.
