About this book


This updated volume provides the foundation for starting a basic science research career as an academic surgeon. Taking a practical approach, the book covers the suggested timeline for the initial academic appointment, including how to setup and fund the laboratory and identifying appropriate scientific mentors and lab personnel. It also describes the application of basic and advanced research techniques, including animal models, flow cytometry, gene editing, tissue engineering, and microbiome analysis.
