Summary

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.

The series:
DT Understands the complex roles of Biomedical Scientists in the modern practice of medicine.
DT Understands the development needs of employers and the Profession.
DT Addresses the need for understanding of a range of fundamental sciences in the context of Biomedicine.
DT Places the theoretical aspects of Biomedical Science in their practical context via clinical case studies.

Medical Microbiology covers a range of key laboratory techniques used in the diagnosis of important human diseases caused by microorganisms. From sample collection, through to analysis and laboratory investigation, the text covers a wide range of procedures and highlights how and why results are generated. The third edition has been expanded to cover a wider range of topics, including a new chapter on Whole Genome Sequencing and extended coverage of syphilis and MALDI.

Author Biography


Michael Ford, Microbiology Department, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Dr Michael Ford has worked in Microbiology for over 30 years and was appointed Microbiology Laboratory Manager for the Newcastle Upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust in 2014. Michael has a wide experience in all areas of diagnostic service provision. He has recently worked very closely with Public Health England which resulted in the transfer of their Newcastle services into the Trust. A key part of this was the setting up of a new molecular diagnostic service for Newcastle. His main research area involved developing novel methods of bacterial identification, which resulted in a number of publications and two successful patents for the development of novel selective media. He has been a lecturer at Northumbria University on both the BSc and MSc Microbiology programmes. Michael has also been a key member of the IBMS Scientific Advisory Panel for Microbiology and IBMS Deputy Chief Examiner.
