About the Author:

Nessar Ahmed, Maureen Dawson, and Chris Smith all teach the biomedical science course at Manchester Metropolitan University. The course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science and the Health Professions Council.

Ed Wood has many years teaching experience in the biological sciences at the University of Leeds

Review:

"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."
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2007
