    Useful Book

    '...faculty that teach in the pharmaceutics curriculum will find the Ho and Gibaldi text of great value as course content is revised and new areas are added and expanded. The book provides important linkages between the science and therapeutics of biotechnology products that faculty will find useful in integrating the subject matter in health sciences and graduate program curricula.' --Stuart Feldman, Ph.D., Biomedical and Health Sciences Institute and Department of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia
