An Introduction to Vascular Biology: From Physiology to Pathophysiology / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Cambridge University Press
The rapid expansion in vascular biology research over recent years has led to improved understanding of a wide range of clinical conditions. For both specialists and newcomers to the field in search of a broad overview and also for the non-specialist requiring an up-to-date insight into progress and its implications, this book provides a much needed concise resource. The multidisciplinary team of contributors present a carefully illustrated and highly readable text which provides both practical information and clear explanations of new molecular techinques which have revolutionised recent research and its future direction.
