Gary Moore is Director of Clinical Diagnostic Research for Technoclone, Honorary Consultant Biomedical Scientist for the Specialist Haemostasis Unit at Addenbrooke's Hospital, and Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Science and Technology at Middlesex University. He received his BSc degree in Biomedical Science from the University of Greenwich and was the first recipient of the Doctor of Biomedical Science degree, from the University of Portsmouth. He is a Fellow and Life Member of the IBMS, Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology, Chartered Scientist and Chartered Biologist. He has published papers and reviews on diagnostic haemostasis, his main area of interest being antiphospholipid antibody detection, and has co-authored guidelines on diagnostic testing in haemostasis. He is a co-chair for the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis, Scientific Sub-Committee on Plasma Coagulation Inhibitors and peer reviewer for international journals of haematology and haemostasis/thrombosis. Gavin Knight is a Principal Lecturer in Haematology, Course Leader for the IBMS and Royal Society of Biology accredited BSc Biomedical Science course, Programme Leader for the Biomedical Sciences area and Technology Enhanced Learning lead for the School of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences. His area of specialist academic interest focuses on the haematological malignancies and the molecular mechanisms underpinning their behaviour. Gavin is a passionate, innovative, educator who favours the use of active learning approaches in Higher Education, with particular emphasis on problem-based and collaborative learning methodologies. Gavin is the recipient of a number of student-led teaching awards and has extensive experience of external examining for IBMS accredited courses. Gavin is the Deputy Chief Examiner for the IBMS Haematology Advisory Panel, is an HCPC registered Biomedical Scientist and holds Fellowship of the IBMS, Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy and is a chartered scientist. Prior to his appointment as Editor of the British Journal of Biomedical Science, Andrew Blann was a Consultant Clinical Scientist at the City Hospital, Birmingham with Hon. Senior Lecturer appointments at Birmingham University Medical School and the University of Wolverhampton. He received his PhD in vascular biology from the University of Manchester, and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathology, the Institute of Biomedical Science, The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, and the Royal Society of Statistics. Other textbooks include Data Handing and Analysis (Oxford University Press), Blood Science (Wiley Blackwell) and Routine Blood Results Explained (M&K Updates).
A great, friendly text to develop haematology knowledge with a good
laboratory practice perspective. * Patricia Procter, Keele
It's the first book I recommend on my haematology courses. * Dr Carol Rea, University of Lincoln *
A really good reference text for use at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, and it also meets the needs of many working Biomedical Scientists. * Dr Colin Casimir, Middlesex University *
