Introduction

Dinah Parums is a medical and scientific writer, editor and journalist. She was Senior Lecturer at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, Hammersmith Hospital and Imperial College School of Medicine, London from 1993. She was an undergraduate at the University of Cambridge where she received an entrance scholarship to King’s College, Cambridge from grammar school. Dinah Parums did her clinical medical training at Oxford University Medical School, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford where she won the George Pickering Prize and the Radcliffe Prize in her final year (1983). During her PhD in Experimental Pathology at the University of Cambridge, she was a Junior Research Fellow of the British Heart Foundation (1984 to 1987), a Research Fellow of Darwin College, Cambridge (1985 to 1987) and a Research Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford (1989 to 1993). She was Clinical Lecturer and Clinical Tutor at the Oxford University Medical School (1988 to 1993). She was awarded Membership of the Royal College of Pathologists in 1991 and the Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists in 1999 and the Fellowship of the American College of Chest Physicians in 1999. She was an External Examiner for the Royal College of Pathologists from 1994 to 2002. Her research has included the topics of inflammation in atherosclerosis [1], chronic periaortitis [2], oxidized LDL and atherosclerosis [3], vasculitis [4], the endothelium [5], and targeted therapy in lung cancer [6]. She has been an investigator in key clinical trials in targeted therapy in non-small cell lung cancer. She has written more than 40 peer-reviewed papers in major scientific medical journals. She has supervised PhD students at the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and University of Newcastle. She is the sole editor of the textbook: Essential Clinical Pathology. Wiley-Blackwell, 1996. ISBN 10: 0632030887 ISBN 13: 9780632030880.
