Elsevier Australia has announced it will this month publish Biochemistry for Health Professionals by Doctors Laura Batmanian, Justin Ridge and Simon Worrall.

This concise introductory text is written specifically for health science students and supported by a comprehensive range of online resources via Elsevier’s evolve website.

Authored by experts practicing and teaching in Australia, the book integrates human biochemistry with physiology and cell biology. Molecular biology and chemistry basics are also addressed.

Biochemistry for Health Professionals assumes no prior knowledge in its readers, making it the ideal reference for health science students who are new to the subject.

The easy-to-follow text is complemented by a wealth of full-colour illustrations, tables and diagrams, along with numerous clinical examples to assist with learning and development.

Biochemistry for Health Professionals is segmented into five sections which cover biological chemistry, molecules of biological importance, cell biology, nutrition and metabolism and molecular biology and genetics. A useful glossary also helps with complex biochemical terms and concepts.

Students and lecturers who purchase Biochemistry for Health Professionals will benefit from further support by way of Elsevier’s ‘evolve’ platform.

Evolve’s online teaching and learning resources include tools for exam preparation; flashcards, animations and crosswords; helpful links, reading suggestions and a test bank an image collection for lecturers.

Biochemistry has a diverse range of applications and as such is a necessary component of disciplines such as medicine, veterinary medicine, food science and dentistry, to name a few.

A high-quality introductory textbook that demystifies this often-complex subject will make study a little easier for students and therefore have far-reaching appeal.
