“Immunology is the quintessential medical science. Indeed, no branch of the medical sciences has improved the health of people more than the application of immunologic principles to prevention of disease” (p xiii). So begins the sixth edition of Fundamental Immunology.
This reference-sized textbook has served scientists, physicians, and students interested in immunology since 1984 and has established itself as the benchmark in the field. This newest edition has the ambitious goal of “aiding in the education of a new generation of immunologists who can . . . extend and enlarge on the record of immunologic science in bettering the lot of humankind” (p xiii).
