Description

Essential Concepts in Molecular Pathology, Second Edition, offers an introduction to molecular genetics and the "molecular" aspects of human disease. The book illustrates how pathologists harness their understanding of these entities to develop new diagnostics and treatments for various human diseases. This new edition offers pathology, genetics residents, and molecular pathology fellows an advanced understanding of the molecular mechanisms of disease that goes beyond what they learned in medical and graduate school.

By bridging molecular concepts of pathogenesis to the clinical expression of disease in cell, tissue and organ, this fully updated, introductory reference provides the background necessary for an understanding of today’s advances in pathology and medicine.

Key Features

  • Explains the practice of "molecular medicine" and the translational aspects of molecular pathology, including molecular diagnostics, molecular assessment and personalized medicine
  • Orients non-pathologists on what pathologists look for and how they interpret their observational findings based on histopathology
  • Provides the reader with what is missing from most targeted introductions to pathology—the cell biology behind pathophysiology

Readership

Biomedical graduate students, allied health students, medical students studying pathology, human disease, and the translational aspects of basic science; residents and postdoctoral fellows in pathology, laboratory medicine, and internal medicine; practicing basic scientists and physician scientists

About the Editor

William Coleman

William B. Coleman, PhD is the Executive Officer for the American Society for Investigative Pathology (Rockville, MD). Prior to taking this position with the American Society for Investigative Pathology, Dr. Coleman spent 28 years at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine (Chapel Hill, NC), first as a postdoctoral fellow (1990-1995) and then as a faculty member (1995-2018) in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. During his time at the UNC School of Medicine, Dr. Coleman served as Director of Graduate Studies for the Molecular and Cellular Pathology Ph.D. Program (2006-2012; now the Pathobiology and Translational Medicine Ph.D. Program), was a co-founder of the UNC Program in Translational Medicine and served as its Co-Director (2006-2015) and then its Director (2015-2018), was affiliated with the Curriculum in Toxicology, the Cancer Biology Training Program, and was a member of the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Coleman was active in teaching biomedical graduate students and is a four-time recipient of the Joe W. Grisham Award for Excellence in Graduate Student Teaching from the Molecular and Cellular Pathology graduate students at the UNC School of Medicine. Prior to becoming an employee, Dr. Coleman was active in the leadership of the American Society for Investigative Pathology, serving in various roles including President (2015-2016). Dr. Coleman was honored with the ASIP Outstanding Investigator Award in 2013 from the American Society for Investigative Pathology. He is also a long-time member of the American Association for Cancer Research. He serves as Senior Associate Editor for The American Journal of Pathology, and is an Associate Editor for BMC Cancer, and PLoS One, and serves on the editorial boards of Clinica Chimica Acta, Experimental and Molecular Pathology, Archives of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Laboratory Investigation, and Current Pathobiology Reports, and has served as an ad hoc reviewer for 99 other journals. Dr. Coleman’s major research interests are in the molecular pathogenesis of human cancers, with a specific interest in breast cancer epigenetics, liver carcinogenesis, and lung cancer biology. His research was funded by the NIH/NCI, The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Friends for an Earlier Breast Cancer Test, and the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Coleman is the author of over 140 original research articles, reviews, and book chapters. In addition, Dr. Coleman has co-edited or co-authored ten books on topics related to molecular pathology, molecular diagnostics, and the molecular pathogenesis of human cancer.
