The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practising biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a biomedical scientist may be
exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Biology of Disease provides an integrated introduction to the basic cell biology that underlies disease processes and
the diagnosis and management of those diseases. By telling the whole story of how a disease develops, how it is diagnosed, and how it is treated, the text provides a thorough understanding of both the molecular and clinical aspects of diseases that are needed to succeed as a practising health care professional. Featuring a wide range of diseases, the text places particular emphasis on diseases that biomedical scientists and other health care professionals are most likely to encounter in a
clinical setting and that have the greatest impact on people's lives. This is reflected in the book's detailed coverage of cancer and cardiovascular disease, which have long been causing many deaths each
year, and its discussion of the COVID-19 pandemic. The inclusion of clinical case studies throughout shows how the theory of disease processes informs the diagnosis and treatment of different diseases in practice. Self-check questions and discussion questions in the book support active learning and allow students to check their understanding. Multiple-choice questions are embedded into the e-book and Science Trove, allowing students to recap seamlessly on what they have
learnt in each chapter. Digital formats and resources Biology of Disease is available for students and institutions to purchase in a variety of formats. -
