In order to learn we must be able to remember, and in the world of science and medicine we remember what we envision, not what we hear. It is with this essential precept in mind that we offer the Cell Biology of Medicine series. Each book is written by faculty accomplished in teaching the scientific basis of disease to both graduate and medical students. In this modern age it has become abundantly clear that everyone is vastly interested in how our bodies work and what has gone wrong in disease. It is likewise evident that the only way to understand medicine is to engrave in our mind's eye a clear vision of the biological processes that give us the gift of life. In these lectures, we are dedicated to holding up for the viewer an insight into the biology behind the body. Each lecture demonstrates cell, tissue and organ function in health and disease. And it does so in a visually striking style. Left to its own devices, the mind will quite naturally remember the pictures. Enjoy the show.
