Dr Lundblad has also served as Editor-in-Chief of two biotechnology journals and and editor of three books including the 5th Edition of Handbook of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

The 5th edition of The Handbook of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has been published and is available at CRC Press.

The 2nd edition of the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Compendium has been completed and at the publisher awaiting processing

Work is starting on a book on thrombin which I am hoping will be more fun than the Compendium. While I did learn a lot, it was tedious. Just finished the first draft of a chapter on the history of thrombin and it is more fun.

His work on thrombin has been seminal in the development of thrombin as hemostatic agent and fibrin sealant. Other work has focused on other blood plasma proteins and salivary proteins.
