Fundamental Immunology, 7th Edition is useful for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, basic and clinical immunologists, microbiologists and infectious disease physicians, and any physician treating diseases in which immunologic mechanisms play a role.

Now full-color throughout, the book's fully revised and updated content reflects the latest advances in the field. Current insights enhance readers's understanding of immune system function. The text's approach bridges the gap between basic immunology and the disease process. Extensive coverage of molecular biology explains the molecular dynamics underlying immune disorders and their treatment. Abundant illustrations and tables deliver essential information at a glance.
