Overview

A comprehensive reference and teaching aid on tissueengineering--covering everything from the basics ofregenerative medicine to more advanced and forward thinking topicssuch as the artificial liver, bladder, and trachea

Regenerative medicine/tissue engineering is the process ofreplacing or regenerating human cells, tissues, or organs torestore or establish normal function. It is an incrediblyprogressive field of medicine that may, in the near future, helpwith the shortage of life-saving organs available through donationfor transplantation.

Introduction to Tissue Engineering: Applications andChallenges makes tissue engineering more accessible toundergraduate and graduate students alike. It provides a systematicand logical eight-step process for tissue fabrication. Specificchapters have been dedicated to provide in-depth principles formany of the supporting and enabling technologies during the tissuefabrication process and include biomaterial development andsynthesis, bioreactor design, and tissue vascularization. Thetissue fabrication process is further illustrated with specificexamples for liver, bladder, and trachea. Section-coverage includesan overall introduction of tissue engineering; enabling andsupporting technologies; clinical applications; and case studiesand future challenges.

Introduction to Tissue Engineering:

  • Presents medical applications of stem cells in tissueengineering
  • Deals with the effects of chemical stimulation (growthfactors and hormones)
  • Covers current disease pathologies and treatment options(pacemakers, prosthesis)
  • Explains bioengineering, design and fabrication, andcritical challenges during tissue fabrication
  • Offers PowerPoint slides for instructors
  • Features case studies and a section on future directions andchallenges

As pioneering individuals look ahead to the possibility ofgenerating entire organ systems, students may turn to this text fora comprehensive understanding and preparation for the future ofregenerative medicine.
