After the 19th-century European pathologists laid the foundation of modern pathology by study of the morphology of tissues and cells, much emphasis in the study of disease shifted to alterations of metabolic balance or blood constituents or utilization of chemical components by whole organs or the whole body. More and more, however, the attention of those interested in pathologic states is being brought full circle to the alterations at the cellular level, now armed not only with the microscope, but also with methods of analysis of subcellular constituents and new concepts of intrinsic regulatory mechanisms of the cell. This symposium on cellular injury is further evidence of the increasing emphasis on the study of disease at the level of cell biology.
Obviously a single symposium cannot examine many aspects of a subject as broad as cellular injury, and every reader will not find all those subjects chosen to be of
