A comprehensive overview of the latest achievements, trends, and the current state of the art of this important and rapidly expanding field.
Clearly and logically structured, the first part of the book explores the fundamentals of tissue engineering, providing a separate chapter on each of the basic topics, including biomaterials stem cells, biosensors and bioreactors. The second part thenfollows a more applied approach, discussing various applications of tissue engineering, such as the replacement or repairing of skins, cartilages, livers and blood vessels, to trachea, lungs and cardiac tissues, to musculoskeletal tissue engineering usedfor bones and ligaments as well as pancreas, kidney and neural tissue engineering for the brain. The book concludes with a look at future technological advances.
An invaluable reading for entrants to the field in biomedical engineering as well as expert researchers and developers in industry.
