Principles of Tissue Engineering 5th edition (PDF) has been the definite resource in the field of tissue engineering for more than a decade. The latest 5th edition provides an update on this rapidly progressing field; combining the prerequisites for a general understanding of tissue growth and development; the tools and theoretical information needed to design tissues and organs; as well as a presentation by the world’s experts of what is currently known about each specific organ system.
As in previous editions; this ebook creates a comprehensive work that strikes a balance among the diversity of subjects that are related to tissue engineering; including chemistry; material science; biology; and engineering; among others; while also emphasizing those research areas that are likely to be of clinical value in the future.
This fifth edition includes a greatly expanded focus on stem cells; including induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells; stem cell niches; and blood components from stem cells. This research has already produced applications in disease modeling; drug development; toxicity testing; and clinical therapies. This up-to-date coverage of stem cell biology and the application of tissue-engineering techniques for food production – is complemented by a series of new and updated chapters on recent clinical experience in applying tissue engineering; as well as a new section on the emerging technologies in the field.
- Full-color presentation throughout
- Introduces a new section and chapters on emerging technologies in the field
- Organized into twenty-three parts; covering the basics of tissue growth and development; approaches to tissue and organ design; and a summary of current knowledge by organ system
