The inspiration for this basic science series occurred at an educational retreat led by Dr. Maximilian Buja, who at the time was the dean of the medical school. It has been such a joy to work together with Drs. William Seifert and Henry Strobel, who are both accomplished scientists and teachers, as well as the other excellent authors and contributors. It has been rewarding to collaborate with Dr. Konrad Harms, whom I have watched mature from a medical student to resident and now a brilliant faculty member. I would like to thank McGraw-Hill for believing in the concept of teaching by clinical cases. I owe a great debt to Catherine Johnson, who has been a fantastically encouraging and enthusiastic editor.
At the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, we would like to recognize Dr. Rodney E. Kellems, Chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, for his encouragement and delight in this project; Johnna Kincaid, former Director of Management Operations for her support; Nina Smith and Bonnie Martinez for their help in preparing the manuscript; and Amy Gilbert for her assistance with the figures. We also would like to thank the many students that have allowed us to teach them over the years and who have in the process taught us. Dr. Seifert thanks his wife Margie for her encouragement, patience, and support.
At Methodist Hospital, I appreciate Drs. Mark Boom, Karin Pollock-Larsen, H. Dirk Sostman, and Judy Paukert, and Mr. John Lyle and Mr. Reggie Abraham. At St. Joseph Medical Center, I would like to recognize our outstanding administrators: Phil Robinson, Pat Mathews, Laura Fortin, Dori Upton, Cecile Reynolds, and Drs. John Bertini and Thomas V. Taylor. I appreciate Marla Buffington’s advice and assistance. Without the help from my colleagues, Drs. Konrad Harms, Jeané Simmons Holmes, and Priti Schachel, this book could not have been written. Most important, I am humbled by the love, affection, and encouragement from my lovely wife, Terri and our four children, Andy, Michael, Allison, and Christina.
