Review quote

"Martin has created a unique and useful reference source for endocrinologists, clinicians, and biomedical researchers. Her dictionary draws together concepts from a variety of fields such as endocrine physiology, pharmacology, molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology, and genetics. Rapidly changing terminology in medicine and related biological sciences makes this reference best suited for working specialists. Recommended for medical and research collections."--Choice"This is a highly useful, if not actually essential, book for endocrinologists... One of the most useful features of the book is that it contains definitions and descriptions of properties of the myriad organic chemicals that are now used as agonists, inhibitors, or regulators of physiological processes at all levels, molecular, cellular, etc.... (illustrated) lavishly with structural formulae for these chemicals. The talents, industry, and erudition of the single author of this dictionary must be admired and complimented."--General and Comparative Endocrinologyshow more
