This is the third volume in the series “Tutorial in Mathematical Biosciences”.
These lectures are based on material which was presented in tutorials or developed
by visitors and postdoctoral fellows of the Mathematical Biosciences
Institute (MBI), at The Ohio State University. The aim of this series is to introduce
graduate students and researchers with just a little background in either
mathematics or biology to mathematical modeling of biological processes.
The first volume was devoted to mathematical neuroscience, which was the
focus of the MBI program in 2002–2003.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Muir's textbook of pathology" presents the following contents: Applications of pathology, normal cellular functions, disease and immunology; clinical genetics, cancer and benign tumour, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, the lymphoreticular system and bone marrow, the gastrointestinal system,...
A second paragraph will
address Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) that has been tested on phantoms
mimicking melanoma. A third paragraph will talk about two techniques that have given
preliminary results on potential Breslow index determination: the first one, infrared
microimaging, performed on fixed and paraffin-embedded tissues (i.e. after excision of the
tumour) and the second one, photoacoustic microscopy, performed in vivo on mice on which
melanoma human cells were xenografted.
