Biology of Disease Summary


Biology of Disease by Maureen M. Dawson

Biology of Disease describes the biology of many of the human disorders and disease that are encountered in a clinical setting. It is designed for first and second year students in biomedical science programs and will also be a highly effective reference for health science professionals as well as being valuable to students beginning medical school. Real cases are used to illustrate the importance of biology in understanding the causes of diseases, as well as in diagnosis and therapy.

Biology of Disease Reviews


"When you first pick up this book and peruse the pages it is immediately encouraging. The presentation and production values are very good, the diagrams and photographs look professional and it is a substantial volume, all of which suggests a worthwhile textbook."

"I would have welcomed this book when I started out in the laboratory, as the books at that time were less welcoming and somewhat drier to read. I recommend this book to students and tutors as a text for any course on the biology of disease."
British Journal of Biomedical Science, Volume 64, Number 1, 2007

"Overall, the book is an excellent introduction to the subject of pathology, disease and laboratory diagnostics, which would be ideal for undergraduate students on biomedical science and related degrees."
