IMMUNOLOGY: A Short Course, Third Edition Eli Benjamini, Geoffrey Sunshine, and Sidney Leskowitz Now, continuing in the tradition of excellence, the fully updated Third Edition . . . Praise for previous editions "An excellent introduction to medically relevant immunology...Readers finishing this book will understand papers in the immunologic literature far better."—The New England Journal of Medicine "This has been the most readable and understandable text that I have used."—Nancy C. Behforouz, Ball State University "Students will find it a great help, especially those who find immunology difficult or boring, and this text is neither."—Journal of Clinical Pathology "The best immunology book available; easy to read and understand."—John R. Palisano, Emory & Henry College "The right level for medical students. They like it and read it. It's an excellent text."—Phyllis D. Kind, The George Washington University Medical School The field of immunology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, posing significant challenges to medical and graduate students who require a basic knowledge of the fundamentals of the field. Immunology: A Short Course, Third Edition from its initial publication in 1988, has established itself as the single most effective text available for a concise yet comprehensive introduction to immunology and immunologic medicine.

In many respects, biology is the new frontier for applied mathematicians. This book demonstrates the important role mathematics plays in the study of some biological problems. It introduces mathematicians to the biological sciences and provides enough mathematics for bioscientists to appreciate the utility of the modelling approach. This book presents a number of diverse topics, such as neurophysiology, cell biology, immunology, and human genetics. It examines how research is done, what mathematics is used, what the outstanding questions are, and how to enter the field. Also given is a brief historical survey of each topic, putting current research into perspective. The book is suitable for mathematicians and biologists interested in mathematical methods in biology.

Cell Surface Receptors: A Short Course on Theory and Methods, 3rd Edition, links theoretical insights into drug-receptor interactions described in mathematical models with the experimental strategies to characterize the biological receptor of interest. The study of receptors has changed considerably over the period of the publication of the three editions of this book. The cloning of several genomes makes it unlikely that preparations of receptors now or in the future will arise from their purification as trace proteins from native tissues, but rather from a myriad of molecular approaches. Nonetheless, understanding the molecular mechanisms and ultimately the in vivo biology of these receptors means that investigators will engage in molecular, cellular and ultimate in vivo strategies. It should be of value to investigators who want to identify, characterize and understand the biology of a receptor of interest.

Harry R. Matthews, PhD, Richard Freedland, PhD, Roger L. Miesfeld, PhD No scientific discipline has experienced such explosive growth or attracted so much popular attention over the past several decades as the study of life at the molecular level. The most quantitative of biological sciences, biochemistry studies the chemical components of living matter; the reactions these components undergo; the energetic changes that accompany such reactions; and the organization, replication, and expression of genes. Biochemistry: A Short Course introduces students to the fundamentals of this fascinating scientific discipline. Based on the authors' years of experience teaching graduate, undergraduate, and professional courses, this comprehensive introduction caters to the specific needs of researchers and students who must familiarize themselves rapidly with core concepts, principles, and theories. Students are afforded a unique opportunity to arrive at a full understanding of important current and pending achievements in the field, without having to wade through extraneous technical details and lengthy theoretical discussions more appropriate to a lab manual or specialized text. Identifies key concepts and covers the essentials for nonmajors and anyone looking for a concise review of modern aspects of biochemistry * Ideal for quick review, follows the critically acclaimed Short Course format, with abundant clear illustrations of key concepts * Includes closely related areas of molecular and cell biology * Features practical examples, including cancer and other diseases, drawn primarily from humans Here is the ideal textbook for medical students as well as graduates and undergraduates in biochemistry, medical biochemistry, and molecular biology courses. It is also an excellent selection for technicians and related professionals who want to review modern aspects of biochemistry in a concise format.
