    DescriptionBiomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and research into the causes, cures and treatment of disease would not be possible. 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. The series * 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 partnerhsip with and endorsed by the Institute of Biomedical Science |l https://www.ibms.org/ Haematology provides a broad-ranging overview of the study of blood, the dynamic fluid that interfaces with all organs and tissues to mediate essential transport and regulatory functions. Written with the needs of the biomedical scientist centre-stage, it provides a firm grounding in the physiology of blood, and the key pathophysiological states that can arise. It demonstrates throughout how an understanding of the physiology underpins the key investigations carried out by a biomedical scientist to forge a clear link between science and practice. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Haematology features: For registered adopters of the book: * Figures from the book, available to download For students: * An interactive Digital Microscope, encouraging the exploration of tissue samples * Self-assessment modules to help you to check and reinforce understanding of the basic science introduced in each volume * Video podcasts including interviews with practicing biomedical scientists, and 'in the lab' footage showing biomedical science in practice

    Review quote
    A very good resource. Chapters are very well elaborated with latest up to date in depth information. Inclusion of learning objectives, summaries and in particular key terms and key points gives it advantage over many other texts currently available. Indu Singh, School of Medical Sciences, RMIT University Covers a range of haematological topics that are both up to date and very comprehensive. Gordon Lowe, School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Scienes, Liverpool John Moores University Laboratory aspects of haematology comprises about 50% of FRCPath exams. I feel that this book is indispensible for passing laboratory aspects in FRCPath exams, both written and oral. The diagrams and writing style are very clear and easy to understand. I highly recommend this book to the future trainees. Dr Yogesh Jethava, Specialist Registrar in Haematology, Guy's & St Thomas' Hospital
