Encyclopedia of Immunobiology provides the largest integrated source of immunological knowledge currently available. It consists of broad ranging, validated summaries on all of the major topics in the field as written by a team of leading experts. The large number of topics covered is relevant to a wide range of scientists working on experimental and clinical immunology, microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, veterinary science, physiology, and hematology.

The book is built in thematic sections that allow readers to rapidly navigate around related content. Specific sections focus on basic, applied, and clinical immunology. The structure of each section helps readers from a range of backgrounds gain important understanding of the subject.

  • Contains tables, pictures, and multimedia features that enhance the learning process
  • In-depth coverage allows readers from a range of backgrounds to benefit from the material
  • Provides handy cross-referencing between articles to improve readability, including easy access from portable devices
