HEMAVID offers students and physicians easy access to a large library of images of blood and bone marrow morphology, with descriptions by one of the world's foremost authorities on the subject. The program was developed at Harvard Medical School to accompany the fifth edition of William S. Beck's text, Hematology. It can be used in conjunction with courses using that book, with review courses in hospitals or medical schools, or for self-study.

The fifth edition of this well-known series of lectures by distinguished Harvard hematologists is substantially revised to include discussions of the many important scientific developments in contemporary hematology. New insights into oncogenes, growth factors, membrane receptors, differentiation and morphogenesis, enzymology, molecular biology, and evolutionary biology appear in virtually every lecture.
