Medical Cell Biology, Third Edition, focuses on the scientific aspects of cell biology important to medical students, dental students, veterinary students, and prehealth undergraduates.
With its National Board-type questions, this book is specifically designed to prepare students for this exam. The book maintains a concise focus on eukaryotic cell biology as it relates to human and animal disease, all within a manageable 300-page format.
This is accomplished by explaining general cell biology principles in the context of organ systems and disease. This updated version contains 60% new material and all new clinical cases.
New topics include apoptosis and cell death from a neural perspective; signal transduction as it relates to normal and abnormal heart function; and cell cycle and cell division related to cancer biology.
