This work would not have been possible without the support and encouragement of those around me.
To begin with, I would like to acknowledge Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad, whose clear vision has guided me to horizons I would never have known. My family is to be acknowledged for their limitless sacrifice, in particular the constant encouragement and support of my wife Amina, who has proved through the years to be the wind under my wings.
Thomas Krausz, MD and Aliya Husain, MD (both Professors of Pathology at the University of Chicago) deserve particular mention for their valuable advice and guiding vision, both in the development of this book as well as my career. Special thanks to the multiple reviewers at medical centers throughout the country for their critical comments, in particular Mir Basharath Alikhan, MD (Pathology resident, University of Chicago) and Joshua T.B. Williams (Class of 2013, Pritzker School of Medicine, University of Chicago) for their extensive review. Olaf Nelson (Chinook Design, Inc.) is to be commended for his excellent layout and design. Finally, I would be remiss without acknowledging my students, who give meaning to what I do.
