Description

Molecular Medicine is the application of genetic or DNA-based knowledge to the modern practice of medicine. Molecular Medicine, 4e, provides contemporary insights into how the genetic revolution is influencing medical thinking and practice. The new edition includes recent changes in personalized medicine, new growth in omics and direct-to-consumer DNA testing, while focusing on advances in the Human Genome project and implications of the advances in clinical medicine. Graduate students, researchers, clinicians and allied health professionals will appreciate the background history and clinical application of up-to-date molecular advances.

Quotes and reviews

"Molecular Medicine, Genomics to Personalized Healthcare fills…the gap by highlighting how we got to our present state of knowledge in molecular genetics, some current applications in clinical care, as well as future research and treatment options."--Anticancer Research, Volume 33, Issue no. 5, May 2013
"Molecular Medicine, 4e, provides contemporary insights into how the genetic revolution is influencing medical thinking and practice. Graduate students, researchers, clinicians and allied health professionals will appreciate the background history and clinical application of up-to-date molecular advances."--Doody.com, April 24, 2013

"...represents an important contribution to the scientific audience as it separates the knowledge of molecular biology and defines it in molecular medicine terms. The book provides a different and unique perspective to the definition and implications of DNA in medicine. This is a high quality book with excellent art work that contributes significantly to the understanding of the text. As the field of molecular medicine expands, it is clear that textbooks such as this will continue to be needed."
- DOODY'S - 3 Stars(2005)

"The text, with its thorough multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, provides an excellent resource for students and professionals working in microbiology, biochemisty, genetics, infectious diseases, molecular biology, and related fields."
- CLINICAL INFECTIOUS DISEASES (January 2005)

"The third edition is a compact primer of molecular medicine that should be very useful to the student or scientist...College and medical students, medical scientists and physicians, and scientists working in other fields who are interested in understanding the principles and methods of molecular medicine will find this a useful and compact introductory reference."
- Marshall Lichtman, University of Rochester Medical Center (2005)
