Lung Epithelial Biology in the Pathogenesis of Pulmonary Disease provides a one-stop resource capturing developments in lung epithelial biology related to basic physiology, pathophysiology, and links to human disease. The book provides access to knowledge of molecular and cellular aspects of lung homeostasis and repair, including the molecular basis of lung epithelial intercellular communication and lung epithelial channels and transporters.
Also included is coverage of lung epithelial biology as it relates to fluid balance, basic ion/fluid molecular processes, and human disease. Useful to physician and clinical scientists, the contents of this book compile the important and most current findings about the role of epithelial cells in lung disease. Medical and graduate students, postdoctoral and clinical fellows, as well as clinicians interested in the mechanistic basis for lung disease will benefit from the books examination of principles of lung epithelium functions in physiological condition.
Dr. Sidhaye is an Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her laboratory is interested in studying lung epithelial cellular responses in chronic lung disease, with a focus on cytoskeleton and cell-cell adhesion. The long term goal is determining lung epithelial responses in COPD and identifying if these changes promote disease and whether we can identify targets to reverse disease.
“…a very comprehensive book that deals with the lung epithelial biology and molecular signaling involved in the normal lung and their implications in disease pathogenesis. It is very well written by experts in the field, highly illustrated, and presented in a very readable format. It is highly recommended for any clinician or scientist who is interested in the molecular and cellular workings of the lung. Score: 92 – 4 Stars” –Doody’s
The book is one of the most updated. Perhaps, it lacks a global vision for translational researches
