Basic Science Methods for Clinical Researchers addresses 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.

About Author

Morteza Jalali is a British doctor-preneur who is fascinated by transformational healthcare innovation through synergies between clinicians, patients, industry and scientists. Born in Manchester, United Kingdom, at the age of 18 he commenced a medical degree at Manchester Medical School and undertook dedicated research training at The Healing Foundation Centre, University of Manchester, following the award of a Royal College of Surgeons student research scholarship. After the completion of his Bachelor's, Master's and medical degrees, Morteza decided to undertake a Doctor of Philosophy degree in stem cell biology at the Wellcome Trust-Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute and was awarded a Cambridge Cancer Centre clinical research training fellowship to study at Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge. Morteza is committing to a career as a surgeon scientist by undertaking a period of postdoctoral research in the United States. He is currently a surgeon in training (plastic surgery theme) and honorary research fellow at the University of Oxford where he enjoys fulfilling a variety of clinical teaching commitments, having been a former faculty member at the University of Bristol. Morteza enjoys rowing, amateur boxing, graphic design, and spending time with family and friends in the United Kingdom and abroad.
