Overview

This text provides a look into the advances in the fields of molecular biology, development and genetics in relation to cardiology. It offers to the reader an introduction to molecular cardiology via a section of introductory overviews. The authors provide chapters on disease-oriented topics written by leaders in the field. Theses experts have gathered a concise and thorough discussion of the relevant molecular, cellular, genetic and developmental biological processes that underlie and contribute to cardiovascular disease. Principles of Molecular Cardiology, presents a reference that any scientist in the field would want to own as a broad overview of the field. Also a valuable tool to any cardiology fellow would benefit from due to the insights it provides into the common diseases in the field.
