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-from microbiology to
cytopathology to transfusion science.
Cytopathology provides a wide-ranging overview of the microscopic study of normal and abnormal cells, showing how current visualization methods are used to study cell structure, and how early detection of abnormal cell pathology can lead to timely clinical interventions.

Review from previous edition The flow of information is excellent and the text is well-written... a good introductory text for undergraduates with an interest in cytology and for professionals in training. * Dr Lesley Walton, School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University *
Lucid, logical coverage of material, set out thoughtfully and supported by good illustrations and learning features that make the text student-friendly... a very useful undergraduate cytopathology textbook. * Dr Nicholas Vardaxis, Endeavour College of Natural Health *
Clearly written, factual and concise. * Dr Patricia Gadsdon, FIBMS, School of Biological Sciences, Bangor University *
