Book Preface

T is book provides an introduction to and review o biochemistry as it pertains to the competencies required or graduation as a doctor o medicine or pharmacy. Increasingly, the basic sciences are taught alongside clinical science, o en organ by organ. T is book can help students in such integrated curricula gain a discipline-speci c understanding o biochemistry, particularly metabolism. T e book is structured so that it is use ul or both the novice and the student who needs a quick review in preparation or licensure exams. T e chapters are extensively cross-re erenced so the material can be used in almost any chapter sequence. Descriptions o disease states are a regular part o the book rather than an addendum in the margin. Students o en nd it challenging to use their knowledge o basic science to solve clinical problems. Hope ully, Dr. Netter’s images (“Medicine’s Michelangelo”), as well as the text and other diagrams in this book, will help students build mental bridges between basic science and clinical practice.
T e chapters have a structure that makes it easy or the reader to decide what to read and review:
■T e Synopsis is an introductory overview o the content o the chapter that requires very little preexisting knowledge.
■T e Learning Objectives indicate what the reader should be able to do when mastering the material presented in the chapter.

■ Each section starts with a preview.
■ Selected terms are printed in bold to make it easier to nd relevant text when starting rom the index.
■ T e diagrams contain only the most essential in ormation.
■ T e Summary provides a brie overview o the chapter material or the expert.
■ A Further Reading section provides the reader with a starting point to satis y deeper interests.
■ Review Questions provide the reader with an opportunity to apply newly acquired knowledge. Answers to these questions are at the end o the book.
Writing this text and designing the accompanying graphs has been a wonder ul and interesting journey or me. I have also enjoyed many years o teaching biochemistry to uture physicians and pharmacists. I hope that you, the reader, will also be amazed by the processes that underlie human existence, both in health and in sickness.
