Medical Cell Biology, Third Edition, focuses on the scientific aspects of cell biology important to medical students, dental students, veterinary students, and prehealth undergraduates. With its National Board-type questions, this book is specifically designed to prepare students for this exam.
The book maintains a concise focus on eukaryotic cell biology as it relates to human and animal disease, all within a manageable 300-page format. This is accomplished by explaining general cell biology principles in the context of organ systems and disease.
This updated version contains 60% new material and all new clinical cases. New topics include apoptosis and cell death from a neural perspective; signal transduction as it relates to normal and abnormal heart function; and cell cycle and cell division related to cancer biology.

“The Third Edition of Medical Cell Biology by Steven Goodman is a highly-readable cell biology textbook designed specifically for medical students. The use of clinical cases builds a framework for the basic concepts and helps reinforce understanding. Every medical student should arm him or herself with this book as preparation for the board exam.” --John Clancy, Jr., PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Cell Biology, Neurobiology, and Anatomy, Loyola University, Chicago, Illinois; President of the Association of Anatomy, Cell Biology, and Neurobiology Chairs “An extremely valuable book for undergraduate, graduate and health professional students that is essential to learning contemporary cell biology, both from the historical standpoint, and from the current literature.” -- Ian S. Zagon, PhD, Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, Hershey, Pennsylvania
