This Third Edition of Medical Cell Biology focuses on the scientific aspects of cell biology important to medical students, dental students, veterinary students, and prehealth undergraduates. Maintaining a primary focus on eukaryotic cell biology, the text explains general cell biology principles in the context of organ systems and human and animal disease.

Key Features

  • 60% New Material!
  • New Topics include: Apoptosis and cell dealth from a neural perspective Signal transduction as it relates to normal and abnormal heart function Cell cycle and cell division related to cancer biology
  • All new clinical cases
  • Serves as a prep guide to the National Medical Board Exam with a CD-ROM of 200 sample board-style questions (using Exam Master(R) technology):

“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
