Overview

Molecular Pathology: The Molecular Basis of Human Disease provides a current and comprehensive view of the molecular basis and mechanisms of human disease. Combining accepted principles with broader theoretical concepts and with contributions from a group of experts, the book looks into disease processes in the context of traditional pathology and their implications for translational molecular medicine. It also discusses concepts in molecular biology and genetics, recent scientific and technological advances in modern pathology, the concept of ""molecular pathogenesis"" of disease, and how disease evolves from normal cells and tissues due to perturbations in molecular pathways.
The book describes the integration of molecular and cellular pathogenesis using a bioinformatics approach and a systems biology approach to disease pathogenesis. It also discusses current and future strategies in molecular diagnosis of human disease, and the impact of molecular diagnosis on treatment decisions and the practice of personalized medicine.
This book is a valuable resource for students, biomedical researchers, practicing physician-scientists who undertake disease-related basic science and translational research, and pathology residents and other postdoctoral fellows.

• Exam Master® web site will host "Self-assessment" questions that students can use to study for the molecular section of the board exam
• Companion Web Site – will host a complete set of PowerPoint slides: to include images from the book and additional images for teaching; course materials; lecture materials
• Teaches from the perspective of “integrative systems biology,” which encompasses the intersection of all molecular aspects of biology, as applied to understanding human disease
• Outlines the principles and practice of molecular pathology
• Explains the practice of “molecular medicine” and the translational aspects of molecular pathology

This textbook is ideal for faculty teaching pathology courses in medical schools and graduate pathology, biomedical, and allied health departments. It teaches from the perspective of integrative systems biology and encompasses all molecular aspects of biology, as applied to the understanding of human diseases. If you are looking for an alternative textbook this is it as it provides state-of-the-art coverage of topics from cell injury and cell death, to the molecular basis of cardiovascular disease.
