The human body is an intricate assembly of organs and systems, whose development and ongoing well-being is tightly-regulated. An understanding of these biological systems and processes is central to the biomedical and healthcare sciences - in understanding how the body works in health and disease, in understanding how we can detect and monitor illness, and in understanding how illnesses can be treated, how drugs can be developed and administered, and how well-being can be restored. Taking a broad, integrated view of the field, Biological Science for the Biomedical and Healthcare Sciences spans human physiology and anatomy, histology, cell biology, pharmacology, and genetics and immunology, to give a complete overview that forms the perfect foundation to any biomedical or healthcare science course. The book leads the reader gently into the main subject areas without overwhelming them with excessive detail.
