Cellular Microbiology Bacteria–Host Interactions in Health and Disease Brian Henderson Cellular Microbiology Research Group, Eastman Dental Institute, University College London, UK Michael Wilson and Rod McNab Department of Microbiology and Cellular Microbiology Research Group, Eastman Dental Institute University College London, UK Alistair J. Lax Oral Microbiology, Guy′s, King′s and St Thomas′ Dental Institute, London, UK Cellular microbiology is an exciting new area of microbiology research which bridges the gap between microbiology and cell biology. Drawing on their own teaching and research experience, the authors have provided a timely and comprehensive introduction to the molecular and cellular biology of bacterial interactions with host cells, and their relevance to human diseases. Cellular Microbiology introduces the key concepts of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell biology, cell signalling mechanisms and current molecular biological techniques used in cellular microbiology before describing how bacteria interact with host eukaryotic cells during infections and health, and explaining the interactions with the immune system which enable an individual to recover from infections. This book will be invaluable to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students studying microbiology, virology, pathology, pharmacology and cell biology. It will also be useful for those researchers interested in bacterial infection.
