Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and research into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible.The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed—frommicrobiology to cytopathology to transfusion science.Histopathology describes the processes and practices that are central to the role of the histopathology biomedical scientist, from presampling to diagnosis to laboratory management. It demonstrates throughout how an understanding of cell and tissue physiology is vital to the successful identification of clinical conditions.

It is very simply and clearly written in language that is easy to understand for the non-specialist. It describes day-to-day histopathology lab practice with clarity and the case studies are very helpful to illustrate the applications of the techniques.
The strength of the book is its detail. The book contains information that is completely lacking from other histopathology books. Overall I think that it is a great textbook for biomedical students and academics.
Any potential biomedical scientist with an interest in histopathology, and sound knowledge of the contents of this well- written and nicely-illustrated text together with appropriate practical experience would be well on their way to becoming a valuable member of the team that comprises the core of todays histopathology laboratory. The text will make a valuable addition to any library associated with laboratories performing histopathological techniques.
