The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series is written to reflect the challenges of practicing 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.
Alongside volumes exploring specific biomedical themes and related laboratory diagnosis, an overarching Biomedical Science Practice volume gives a grounding in the professional and experimental skills with which any Biomedical Scientist must be equipped.
DT Understands the complex roles of Biomedical Scientists in the modern practice of medicine
DT Understands the development needs of employers and the Profession
DT Addresses the need for understanding of a range of fundamental sciences in the context of Biomedicine
DT Places the theoretical aspects of Biomedical Science in their practical context
Cell Structure and Function describes the structural and functional features of the various types of cell from which the human body is formed. Focusing on normal cellular structure and function, it gives students and trainees a firm grounding in the appearance and behaviour of healthy cells and tissues on which can be built a robust understanding of cellular pathology.
With cell structure and function correlated with clinical contexts throughout, Cell Structure and Function is the ideal introduction to cellular biology for any student of biomedical science.
