A book co-authored by UWA's Professor of Respiratory Medicine, Dr Gary Lee, has been described as "the definitive textbook on pleural diseases across the world."
Textbook of Pleural Diseases (second edition) by YC Gary Lee with co-author Richard Light was recently awarded first prize (respiratory) in the British Medical Association book awards for 2009.
The judges described it as "an excellent textbook edited by two of the leading lights in this field" and "the must have textbook for all those dealing with pleural diseases. They recommended that "medical librarians might consider buying several copies to meet the demand."
The award was presented in London by Professor Sheila McLean, Professor of Law and Ethics in Medicine at the University of Glasgow.
