Welcome to Mechanisms in Hematology
Mechanisms in Hematology will be of interest to hematologists,
oncologists, stem cell transplant specialists, and
immunologists, as well as to medical students, residents, and
hematology fellows, as an educational resource. It provides
essential background for understanding the molecular biology
and pathophysiology of hematologic disorders.
The goal has been to assemble the core knowledge required to
understand twenty-seven different topics in hematology. Each
chapter provides an explanation of fundamental biological
concepts and links them to the relevant clinical disorders.
Suggested readings accompany each chapter and are
intended to entice the reader to delve further into the subject.
