Essential Concepts in Molecular Pathology,
Edition 2
Edited by William B. Coleman and Gregory J. Tsongalis, PhD, HCLD, CC, FNACB

Publication Date: 25 Nov 2019

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
