The first course-based textbook on Molecular Medicine covers 15 modules from molecular diagnostics to personalized medicine approaches, stem cells, and gene therapy.
We present the first course-based textbook on Molecular Medicine. The fifteen chapters in this volume cover a broad spectrum of topics ranging from basic immunology to disease-related signaling pathways. Novel molecularly-based developments in disciplines ranging from oncology to virology to gene therapy and stem cell technology, to new approaches in personalized medicine are also discussed. The chapters are lavishly illustrated with illuminating professional artwork, and an ethics section and supplementary material are also included.
