The extraordinary biology of the naked mole-rat / Rochelle Buffenstein, Thomas J. Park, Melissa M. Holmes, editors.

This volume focuses on the huge advances in the last 25 years on the use of this animal model for biomedical research (cancer, heart disease and neurodegeneration), fundamental neuroscience and basic subterranean biology. In 2013, Science magazine named the naked mole-rat as the Vertebrate of the Ye...
