Medbio is dedicated to my students, who have been a continuous source of inspiration.  They ask lots of questions which, unfortunately, I just do not have sufficient time to answer.  The extremely rapid advances in both medical sciences and distribution of this new knowledge through electronic media has greatly enlarged the gap between what I "know" and that which I can communicate in the allotted time. is my attempt to fill that gap.

I am deeply indebted to my wife, Aud Gulbransen for her never-tiring  help in correction of these pages and her repeated encouragement to continue with this project.
