This textbook is geared toward providing a cogent navigation through the wealth of scholarly information that emanates from the remarkable and continuously advancing medical discoveries of our times. Our challenge remains to be both concise and didactic, while still covering all relevant biomedical endocrine science in an accessible and comprehensive fashion. With these goals in mind, we have once again assembled a team of outstanding authorities in the feld who each contribute their unique expertise in the synthesis of current knowledge for each area. For this edition, we have added new chapters on the genetics of endocrinology and on population health, and several new authors also now provide fresh perspectives on their rapidly evolving felds. These new contributions reflect the changing emphasis of endocrine practice today. Each section has undergone signifcant revision and updating to bring the most current information to our readers. We are deeply appreciative of the valued co-workers in our respective offces, including Lynn Moulton, Grace Labrado, and Sharon Sain, for their dedicated efforts. We also thank our colleagues at Elsevier—Helene Caprari, Margaret Nelson, Jennifer Ehlers, and Sharon Corell—for shepherding the entire production process so professionally. The final product of this exemplary text is due to their skilled navigation of the medical publishing world. We are confident that our combined efforts have succeeded in achieving the high standards set by previous editions that have made Williams the classic “go to” book for all those interested in endocrinology
