Pathobiology of Human Disease: A Dynamic Encyclopedia of Disease Mechanisms
The new standard reference in the pathology and molecular biology of human disease.
Linda M. McManus, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, USA
Richard Mitchell, Brigham & Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA
- Reviews quantitative advances in the imaging and molecular analysis of human tissue, new microarray technologies for analysis of genetic and chromosomal alterations in normal and diseased cells and tissues, and new transgenic models of human disease using conditional, tissue-specific gene targeting
- Articles link through to relevant virtual microscopy slides, illustrating side-by-side presentation of “Normal” and “Disease” anatomy and histology images
- Fully-annotated with many supplementary full color images, graphs, tables, and video files linked to data sets and to live references, enabling researchers to delve deeper and visualize solutions
Pathobiology of Human Disease bridges traditional morphologic and clinical pathology, molecular pathology, and the underlying basic science fields of cell biology, genetics, and molecular biology, which have opened up a new era of research in pathology and underlie the molecular basis of human disease.
The work spans more than 48 different biological and medical fields, in five basic sections:
- Human Organ Systems
- Molecular Pathology/Basic Mechanisms of Diseases
- Animal Models/Other Model Systems
- Experimental Pathology
- Clinical Pathology
Each article provides a comprehensive overview of the selected topic to inform a broad spectrum of readers from research professionals to advanced undergraduate students.

Linda M. McManus, PhD, is a Distinguished Teaching Professor, Department of Pathology, at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, TX. She conducts basic biomedical research focused on the cellular and molecular regulation of inflammatory events in tissue injury and regeneration. Dr. McManus is Past-President of the American Society for Investigative Pathology, Director of the Cardiovascular Pathobiology Training Program and Co Director of the Clinical and Translational Science Education Programs at UT San Antonio.
Richard N. Mitchell, MD, PhD is Professor of Pathology and Health Science and Technology Society at Harvard Medical School and is a staff pathologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, specializing in cardiovascular and autopsy pathology. He conducts research at the interface of immunology and vascular cell biology, focusing on the mechanisms underlying acute and chronic rejection in solid organ allografts, with specific emphasis on heart transplantation. He is Associate Director of the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST), directs the HST Human Pathology course at Harvard Medical School, and has written several chapters for the Robbins and Cotran “family” of pathology texts.
