Description

Written primarily for students embarking on an undergraduate bioscience degree, this primer provides a clear introduction to the main aspects of cell signalling in biological systems, demystifying the subject for those new to the field.

  • Oxford Biology Primers are the only resource to introduce prospective and current students of undergraduate-level bioscience to a range of topics from this dynamic experimental science, enticing readers to study further.
  • Its titles directly support two key transitions in the student journey: from school to undergraduate-level study, and from undergraduate to independent researcher.
  • Its modular format offers a high degree of flexibility, with teachers being able to draw on specific volumes that augment the post-16 curriculum and university lecturers being able to draw on specific volumes at different stages of the undergraduate curriculum.
  • All titles in the series are available in print and also as ebooks with functionality, navigation features, and links that offer extra learning support.

About the Author(s)

John Hancock, Professor of Cell Signalling, University of the West of Engalnd, Bristol

John Hancock has worked in the area of cell signalling for over 30 years and on ResearchGate has over 170 research items listed. He has already authored a major textbook called Cell Signalling (now 4th ed.) published by OUP. Having studied for a BSc in Biochemistry he stayed at the University of Bristol, completing his PhD before remaining in the same department as a researcher for six years. In 1993 he took a post at the University of the West of England, Bristol, where he has remained ever since, being promoted to professor in January 2016. He has researched extensively on redox signalling in a range of organisms and has taught cell signalling to undergraduates and postgraduates for the last 25 years. He regularly attends and contributes to international conferences on nitric oxide signalling and the role of reactive oxygen species on biological systems, as well as writing numerous reviews and book chapters.
