    About the Author

    John Ingraham was a professor of microbiology at UC Davis. He has taught microbiology at all levels, and says that the introductory course was always his favorite. He hopes to create the same fascination with the microbial world in his students that he discovered in the introductory course. John has co-authored several microbiology texts and a CD, and was elected president of the American Society for Microbiology in 1993.

    Catherine Ingraham is a board-certified pediatrician with the Permanente Medical Group, Inc. in Rancho Cordova, CA. She received a great many honors during her studies and medical training, including being named the Outstanding Student in Obstetrics and Gynecology during her final year at the University of California-Davis. The compelling case studies which appear throughout the text are drawn from actual cases in Catherine's medical practice.
