Human Molecular Biology is an introduction to the molecular basis of health and disease for the new generation of life scientists and medical students. By integrating cutting-edge molecular genetics and biochemistry with the latest clinical information, the book weaves a pattern which unifies biology with syndromes, genetic pathways with developmental phenotypes, and protein function with drug action. From the origins of life to the present day, a narrative is traced through the workings of genomes, cells and organ systems, culminating in linking of laboratory technologies to future research horizons. Lavishly illustrated throughout with two-colour diagrams and full colour clinical pictures, this text brings the complexities and breadth of human molecular biology clearly to life. This seamless account breaks through the boundaries between molecular biology and medicine, and leads the reader on to a new dimension where the biological basis of health and disease is inescapably molecular. Human Molecular Biology scooped both the Richard Asher prize for best new textbook and the overall 'Medical Book of the Year' in the Society of Authors and Royal Society of Medicine Medical Book Awards 2003.

Review:

'One cannot but applaud Epstein's energy in writing this book, and Cambridge University Press's skill in presenting it so pleasingly.' Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

'... the author achieves his goal of filling a niche for molecular biology textbooks that lucidly integrate the molecular basis of disease with clinical applications. This new text is clearly distinct from most molecular biology textbooks directed toward true students of the field.' Gastroenterology 2004

From the Publisher:

***STOP PRESS***
Medical Book of the Year 2003!!
At the recent Society of Authors and Royal Society of Medicine Awards 2003 held at the RSM in London, Human Molecular Biology by Richard Epstein won both the Richard Asher Prize (first medical textbook by single author) and the overall Medical Book of the Year. Judges were particularly impressed with its integration of molecular biology and medicine, and its user-friendly design incorporating colour coded review aids and line-diagrams.
