Life Sciences

Here you can browse or search our titles in Life Sciences, including Agricultural and Biological Sciences, Immunology, Microbiology and Virology, Neuroscience, Pharmaceutical Science, Pharmacology, and Toxicology. We have Advisory Boards in numerous Life Sciences areas, which you can see at the Advisory Boards link above. We are always happy to consider proposals in Life Sciences, and to review applications to join an Advisory Board. Please click here to find out more about how to submit a proposal, and here to complete an Advisory Board application.

Cambridge Scholars Publishing also publishes in Health Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Social Sciences. Established in 2001, our operational headquarters are in the historic Lady Stephenson Library, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom, with representative offices in Berlin, Germany; Barcelona, Spain; and Hangzhou, China.

Agricultural and Biological Sciences

Cambridge Scholars Publishing's Agricultural and Biological Sciences books encompass original scientific research concerned with the advance of agriculture studies and the use of land resources worldwide. Including strategic and applied agriculture articles, the topics covered compose the history of agriculture, aspects of crop and animal physiology, modelling of crop and animal systems, environmental impacts, rural biodiversity, and advances in biotechnology.

Life Sciences

Cambridge Scholars Publishing’s titles in Life Sciences branch into all areas of this large and dynamic field. Our comprehensive collection has titles on a wide range of relevant topics, including microorganisms, biodynamics, ecology, food science, plant science and nanotechnology. As a whole, the collection is an essential companion to scientists and researchers interest in all areas of the Life Sciences and cognate fields. 

Microbiology and Virology

The Microbiology and Virology titles at Cambridge Scholars Publishing comprise a wide range of original scientific research on some of the leading subject areas, including microorganisms and their relationship to the earth, microbes, vaccinations, the cultivation of viruses and their genetics and the classification of these viruses. These books will be important to microbiologists and virologists alike, as well as researchers in parallel fields.


Cambridge Scholars Publishing’s titles on Neuroscience are both original pieces of research from individual scientists and collaborations of leading experts. We publish titles in a range of subject matters, including neurochemistry, experimental psychology, mathematical modelling and the emergent properties of neurons and neural circuits. We also have a growing subset of introductory neuroscience texts that will be essential reading for students and emerging practitioners.

Pharmaceutical Science

Our titles on Pharmaceutical Science at Cambridge Scholars Publishing present a multidisciplinary approach to the fields of chemical, biological and biochemical sciences. Our books in this area cover core subjects, particularly the analysis and delivery of pharmaceutical substances, physico-chemical and biological principles, and the sourcing, preparation, analysis and properties of medicinal agents.


Cambridge Scholars Publishing’s Pharmacology books are an important counterpart to our Pharmaceutical Sciences titles. The Pharmacology collection covers titles on a wide range of subjects, including drug composition and properties, pharmacodynamics, molecular diagnostics, chemical biology and pharmacokinetics. Pharmacists and pharmacologists will find both collections crucial to the refining and development of their professional practice.


Our range of titles on Toxicology at Cambridge Scholars Publishing present original research on a wide range of subjects within this field, such as the adverse effect of chemical compounds in living organisms, the relationship between dosages and effect, and chemical toxicity.

Gemmotherapy, and the Scientific Foundations of a Modern Meristemotherapy

This book reports on the current state of meristemotherapy (also called gemmotherapy or budtherapy) and its possible future directions. Meristemotherapy focuses on the growth of plants, and is based on analytical studies, pre-clinic research, clinical trials and activity tests. The book investigates the determination of preparation...

Long Non-Coding RNA

Long non-coding RNAs (LncRNAs) were originally regarded as “noise” in the genome due to their lack of protein-encoding capacity. However, their roles are now understood to cover various biological functions like gene regulation, cell proliferation, survival, differentiation, and chromatin remodeling. As an emerging group of non-coding RNA molecules, LncRNAs are involved in diverse diseases like cancer, cardiovascular, autoimmune, hormonal disorders, neurodegeneration, and infection, among others. However, knowledge of the mechanisms by which they act is still ambiguous. As such, this book meets the essential need for a textbook dedicated to this topic and provides a comprehensive and captivating account of lncRNA research.

The Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry on Medicine, as Exemplified by Proton Pump Inhibitors

This book is based upon 45 years of clinical and scientific experience with gastroenterology, especially the stomach. In clinical medicine, Marshall and Warren’s assertion that Helicobacter pylori is the main cause of gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, and gastric cancer made an immense impact. However, although peptic ulcers now can be treated with antibiotics, drugs that inhibit gastric acid secretion, including proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), are used in up to 10% of the adult population in Western countries in the treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and dyspepsia. For a long time, PPIs were the most frequently sold drugs, which made their economic impact huge.The reduction of gastric acidity induces the release of the gastric hormone gastrin, which stimulates its target, the ECL cell, to release histamine; this subsequently augments the acid secretion from the parietal cell. Gastrin also stimulates ECL cell proliferation, and long-term hyperstimulation leads to the development of tumors. The author of this book began his studies into the role of the ECL cell in human gastric carcinomas by demonstrating ECL cell markers in gastric cancer cells. This incriminated the ECL and its main regulator, gastrin, in gastric carcinogenesis. Every condition with reduced gastric acidity including treatment with drugs inhibiting acid secretion, leads to increased gastrin and thus to a predisposition to gastric cancer. This short book provides ample evidence of the pharmaceutical industry’s influence on medical science. It also highlights the lack of respect and attention that the medical world gives to a biological function like gastric acidity, which prevents microbes, including viruses and prions, from entering the body through the gut.
