TV Series Highlighting 'Unsung Heroes' of Medical Field

Dr. Alan Wu, lauded professor of laboratory medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, sought-after speaker, and lab director at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, is adapting the stories from his six books into a TV series.

The series will be a serialized drama following a lab director as she directs a team of chemists, toxicologists, and microbiologists to provide critical lab information to doctors and their patients. It will present real medical cases and show how the lab staff uses science to solve medical mysteries as patients’ lives hang in the balance.

The reviews speak for themselves : Spellbinding...This is definitely a 5-star read... A friend recommended this book to me, and once I started reading it, it was so hard to put down... This book completely changed the way I think about [everything] ... These riveting short stories expose you to the inner world of laboratory medicine...Unlike predictable books and movies where everything magically works out in the end, you never know what’s going to happen. This makes the book intense and full of uncertainty...I had no intention of reading them all in one day when I started... As entertaining as the best mystery
