Molecular endocrinology-a personal perspective

Author(s): Kambadur Muralidhar

Abstract

The philosophical underpinnings of Molecular Endocrinology have been examined. The major questions raised by molecular endocrinology and the progress achieved in answering these three major questions have been presented as a historical development of connected conceptual ideas in this area. The unsolved problems of this area of research have also been brought to notice. It has been shown that endocrinology is the most elegant example for the success of Reductionist philosophy in Biology.
