Not On Our Shelves - Available to Order


Immunology offers the most contemporary perspective on the science available, providing a clear, easy-to-follow introduction to the discipline suitable for undergraduate students. In a course where students often get lost in vast amounts of detail and the sheer complexity of the immune response, Immunology helps students see "the big picture" with an approachable narrative that presents the exquisite details of immunology while emphasizing the connections between key themes that students so often lose sight of when learning the material.

Immunology features an exceptional illustration program and includes simple, clear explanations, abundant examples, and features that unravel the mysteries of immunology through accounts of classical discoveries and recent, cutting-edge research. Since many students in the course are preparing to enter careers in research, medicine, and other health professions, an appropriate amount of applied knowledge and clinical content is included in the narrative, features, and engaging case studies. Students will easily be able to make connections, moving beyond memorizing just what we know to truly understanding how we know what we know--and why.

About the Author

Stephen J. Juris is Associate Professor at Central Michigan University. He received his PhD from the University of Michigan and completed a postdoctorate at Harvard Medical School. Stephen's research interests focus on the role of bacterial toxins in bacterial pathogenesis. His dissertation work was conducted on Yersinia pestis (causative agent of the bubonic plague) and its role in shutting down the immune response. His postdoctoral work examined the biochemical and biophysical action of anthrax toxin, including transport across endosomal membranes and action within cells. His current research at CMU focuses on a toxin made by Vibrio cholerae (causative agent of cholera) and the role the toxin plays in disruption of the cytoskeleton in intestinal epithelial cells. During his tenure at CMU, he has taught courses in Immunology, Bacterial Pathogenesis, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, and others. When he is not in the lecture hall or in the lab, he enjoys running, golf, and spending time withhis family and friends.
