KARACHI: Pakistani academic duo made homeland proud by writing an Oral Biology book titled “An Illustrated Guide to Oral Histology” to address the challenges in understanding the concepts of Oral Histology. The WILEY Publishers, UK, have published the book.

Dr Imran Farooq and Dr Saqib Ali are alumni of Baqai Dental College, Baqai Medical University, Karachi, Pakistan (BDS, Graduated 2006, and 2008) and Queen Mary University of London, U.K (MSc Oral Biology 2011).

Imran and Saqib have 10+ years of experience in teaching Oral Biology to dental undergraduate and postgraduate students. They have published 100+ and 60+ research papers and book chapters that have received 1000+ and 500+ citations, respectively. Their passion for teaching and learning had led them to create a 9-chapter book in collaboration with Prof. Paul Anderson from the Queen Mary University of London, UK, that outlines the histology and pathology of oral tissues and their clinical significance.

The textbook contains high-definition histological images of oral tissues with integrated text on its introduction, key identifying histological features, and clinical considerations. There is a companion website for the book as well.

In an exclusive talk, they said,

"Our teaching passion has led us to create a 9 chapter book that outlines the histology and pathology of oral tissues and their clinical significance. The idea for a book focused on critical elements of oral histological features arose about two years ago when we saw several gaps in the existing literature on the subject. This book provides information on these aspects in an easy-to-understand way. It includes integrated text with high-definition (HD) histological photographs of oral tissues, as well as an introduction, key identifying histological features, and clinical importance. The textbook is aimed at dentistry students in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, as well as licensure exam candidates and oral histology instructors.

We were both working full-time when we started on this book, so we had to cram writing and editing into late nights and weekends. We got the sensation throughout the process that we were accomplishing something fantastic and that this book will be valuable to the readers. Writing a book taught us a lot about patience, drafting, and the craft of writing. In retrospect, we are very proud that we wrote this book published by WILEY (a global publishing giant). Writing and editing a book isn't easy, but it's also not impossible. It is possible to achieve with the correct amount of determination and collaboration, and the results could be fruitful."
