This text tells the story of cells as the units of life in a colorful and student-friendly manner, taking an "essentials only" approach. By using the successful model of previously published "Short Courses," this text succeeds in conveying the key points without overburdening the reader with secondary information. The authors (all active researchers and educators) skillfully present concepts by illustrating them with clear diagrams and examples from current research. Special boxed sections focus on the importance of cell biology in medicine and industry today. This text is completely updated from the successful "Cell Biology, A Short Course, 2e," includes new chapters and now has a supporting website with tests and animations for students and power point slides and supplemental material for instructors: http://www.wileyshortcourse.com/cellbiology/default.asp

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.

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.
