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.

Steven R. Goodman, Ph.D. serves as Vice Chancellor for Research at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) where he also serves as Professor in the Departments of Pediatrics and Physiology in the College of Medicine; with additional appointments in the College of Dentistry, College of Graduate of Health Sciences, College of Health Professions, College of Nursing, and College of Pharmacy. Dr. Goodman has led creation of the Clinical Trials Network of Tennessee (CTN2) and serves as the President and CEO of CTN2. Steve is known globally for his four decades of research into the structure and function of cell structures called membrane skeletons. His related research into sickle cell disease led to defining the molecular basis of the irreversibly sickle cell and his recent proteomic studies led to potential biomarkers for sickle cell severity. Dr. Goodman’s research accomplishments have led to his becoming a recipient of the Society of Experimental Biology and Medicine (SEBM) Distinguished Scientist Award and his election as a 2016 American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Fellow. Dr. Goodman is a Past President of the Association of Anatomy, Cell Biology and Neurobiology Chairs (AACBNC). Steve serves on multiple editorial boards and has been Editor-in-Chief of Experimental Biology and Medicine (EBM) since July 2006. Since becoming Editor-in-Chief of EBM, Dr. Goodman has globalized SEBM and EBM opening offices in Tainan, Taiwan, London, Great Britain, Chengdu, China, Campinas, Brazil and most recently Ghana Africa. Steve hopes that you enjoy his 4th Edition of Goodman’s Medical Cell 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
