New Chlamydia Book

Ming Tan, MD, is the editor of Intracellular Pathogens I: Chlamydiales, which was just published by ASM Press.

The book describes the latest on research about the intracellular pathogen chlamydia, which is the leading cause of infections reported to the CDC each year. The image on the book cover was made by Jennifer Lee, who is a joint graduate student in the Tan and Suetterlin Labs, together with collaborators at UC San Diego. It is a 3D electron microscopy reconstruction of a chlamydia-infected cell showing elementary bodies (EBs) in blue and reticulate bodies (RBs) in gold (UC Irvine colors!) within the large chlamydial inclusion.

Tan is also the lead editor of a companion volume, Intracellular Pathogens II:Rickettsiales.
