Basic Science Methods for Clinical Researchersaddresses the specific challenges faced by clinicians without a conventional science background. The aim of the book is to introduce the reader to core experimental methods commonly used to answer questions in basic science research and to outline their relative strengths and limitations in generating conclusive data.

This book will be a vital companion for clinicians undertaking laboratory-based science. It will support clinicians in the pursuit of their academic interests and in making an original contribution to their chosen field. In doing so, it will facilitate the development of tomorrow's clinician scientists and future leaders in discovery science.

  • Serves as a helpful guide for clinical researchers who lack a conventional science background
  • Organized around research themes pertaining to key biological molecules, from genes, to proteins, cells, and model organisms
  • Features protocols, techniques for troubleshooting common problems, and an explanation of the advantages and limitations of a technique in generating conclusive data
  • Appendices provide resources for practical research methodology, including legal frameworks for using stem cells and animals in the laboratory, ethical considerations, and good laboratory practice (GLP)
Morteza Jalali is a British doctor-preneur who is fascinated by transformational healthcare innovation through synergies between clinicians, patients, industry and scientists.
