"This series of books delivers the fundamental concepts of biomedical science. Key facts, together with beautifully designed and fully explained diagrams form the foundation of each volume. The chapters give sufficient background and proceed to develop certain themes using either case studies or clinical scenarios to promote deeper learning and encourage further reading; the self-assessment sections will help students monitor their progress. The series provides vital reading material for undergraduate students, as well as those who are working at a more advanced level towards one of the IBMS Specialist Diplomas." Liverpool John MooresUniversity
The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series is written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis.
Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Alongside volumes exploring specific biomedical themes and related laboratory diagnosis, an overarching Biomedical Science Practice volume gives a grounding in the professional and experimental skills with which any Biomedical Scientist must be equipped.
Understands the complex roles of Biomedical Scientists in the modern practice of medicine.
Understands the development needs of employers and the Profession.
Addresses the need for understanding of a range of fundamental sciences in the context of Biomedicine.
Places the theoretical aspects of Biomedical Science in their practical context.
The series is developed in partnership with and endorsed by the Institute of Biomedical Science. See ibms.org for more information.
