More About the Author

Lauren Pecorino was born in New York City and grew up on Long Island, NY. She received her PhD from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in Cell and Developmental Biology. She crossed the Atlantic to carry out a postdoctoral tenure at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, London. She is a Principal Lecturer at the University of Greenwich where she greatly enjoys teaching a course called: Cancer Biology and Therapeutics. The teaching of this course motivated her to write a university textbook called "The Molecular Biology of Cancer: Mechanisms, Targets, and Therapeutics, published by Oxford University Press. The text has been translated into several languages and is now in its second edition. Feedback on the textbook posted on Amazon from a cancer patient drove her to write a book on cancer for a wider audience. Her latest book, Why Millions Survive Cancer: the successes of science, is for those who are interested in science and well being. She hopes it will make a difference to your life.

Product Description

Review

Dr. Pecorino has done a fantastic job... The book's engaging writing-style and well thought out structure welcomes anyone with an interest in studying cancer in thorough, interesting detail. Reading this text was a pleasure, benefited me greatly educationally and made me feel like being a real part of the teaching - as though things were being explained to me in a one-on-one tutorial, an experience that most other medical textbooks don't provide! (Amazon.co.uk reviewer)

: Pecorino gets the balance right between cell and molecular biology, focusing on mechanism rather than disease. Importantly the students like the text and can afford to buy the book. Therefore it is a real support to our learning program and actually used by the students. (Dr Bernard Mahon, Biology Department/Institute of Immunology, National University of Ireland)

The author's infectious enthusiasm as a teacher comes across on every page of this beautifully illustrated book. To guide her readers through this increasingly complex field, she introduces some novel features, including "Special interest" boxes, sections labelled, "Pause to think," well-designed chapter highlights and aids to "Memory refreshment." Given the speed of development of this field, the book is remarkably up to date. (Sir David Weatherall, Emeritus Regius Professor of Medicine, Oxford University in THES Textbook Guide - February 2006)

This book is very concise, and extremely relevant to the Masters programme I have just commenced in Clinical Oncology. Having come from a nursing background, this book provides the appropriate level of learning for my needs, but for those in more advanced positions also. The author is obviously very passionate about both teaching and Oncology, and this enthusiasm helps in the reading and learning process. The book is full of fantastic reference sources, which will come in very useful for my assignments I am sure. The book's size means that I can take it with me to read on the train without causing a shoulder injury, which is a bonus.

I found that your book `molecular biology of cancer' is really helpful for understanding cancer biology systematically.
There are tight connections between different conceptions in this book and I can see a clear story line which really do benefit to my learning. And there are latest progress to support the principle which means that the author can connect the research news to previous knowledge and have the ability to evaluate them.
This evaluation benefits me as well since it hints the logic and method of learning.

I ordered this book from "the Full Monty" but never received it. I did however borrow it from the university library whilst waiting for the ordered one to arrive. A really good book about the subject. very clear explanations.
