Designed to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today, The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science
series combines essential basic science with insights into laboratory
practice, demonstrating how an understanding of the biology of disease
is coupled with 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.
A new volume in this exciting series, Medical Microbiology examines microbiology from the viewpoint of the biomedical scientist based in a laboratory. Adopting a holistic approach to the study of pathogens and their isolation and identification, it explains the basis of key laboratory techniques as well as the scientific theory that underpins them. With a focus on the many branches of medical microbiology--including bacteriology, mycology, and virology--each process is covered in sufficient detail to ensure that students understand how and why a result is generated and the pitfalls of the processes involved. The text is enhanced by numerous case studies, examples, and full color throughout. A Companion Website offers resources for students and instructors, including a fully interactive digital microscope, self-assessment activities, and video podcasts.
