Sneak Peek at Pathobiology of Human Disease

By: , Posted on: April 30, 2014

Pathobiology of Human DiseaseAfter 4 years in development and with contributions from more than 800 authors and editors, Pathobiology of Human Disease will debut on ScienceDirect this August. Under the expert guidance of Editors-in-Chief Linda McManus and Rick Mitchell, it will provide a dynamic, centralized resource enabling graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior investigators to understand the fundamental structure and functions of human tissues, as well as the pathophysiologic mechanisms that underlie human disease.

The work will showcase numerous features only possible via electronic delivery including supplementary enhanced features like full-color images, graphs, tables and video files linked to data sets and live references, allowing researchers to delve deeper and visualize solutions.

It will bridge traditional morphologic and clinical pathology, molecular pathology, cell biology, genetics, and molecular biology, diving deep to get at the underpinnings of human disease—and to identify the tools and approaches that will ultimately allow the development of better treatments.

Pathobiology of Human Disease publishes on ScienceDirect this August and is available to order now.  To recommend to your librarian, complete our simple recommend form.

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.

The scope of life sciences is as vast as the variety of life on Earth: mathematical biology, developmental biology, molecular and cell biology, parasitology and virology, microbiology and immunology — the list goes on. Elsevier, through its renowned imprints like Academic Press, provides high-quality content in all of these areas that supports learning, teaching, and research. Our books, eBooks, journals, and online tools are cross-disciplinary, allowing academics and professionals to effectively learn about science outside their areas of focus.
