About the book

This book will provide contemporary and comprehensive insights into the field of Molecular Medicine. It will cover recent advances, as well as basic principles, targeting an audience of practicing researchers, academics, Ph.D. students and other scientists. Applications of several techniques and omic technologies that are useful in elucidating molecular mechanisms will also be covered. This book will highlight topics on molecular oncology, genetic disorders, cellular diseases, and different therapy options. Understanding molecular and biochemical mechanisms of the diseases in detail can lead to the design of specific tools for disease diagnosis, treatment, or prevention.

This book aims to provide personalized medicine recipes/ alternative drugs for cancer and infectious diseases patients. For this reason, understanding the molecular details of the diseases can help treatment options.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
