One Line Description
The book features all the important biomaterials aspects from fundamental principles to current technological advances at the macro, micro and nano levels which are suitable for tissue engineering.

The book is intended for a wide audience including students, researchers, scientists, and industrial experts working in the fields of biomaterials, materials science and engineering, nanoscience and nanotechnology, bioengineering, biomedical sciences, and tissue engineering.

Integrated Biomaterials in Tissue Engineering addresses the range of tissue repair and regenerative applications for which scaffolds can be utilized and describes various protocols and techniques employed in the manufacture of tissue scaffolds. In addition, it extensively covers with illustrated examples, molecular and cellular interactions with biomaterials/scaffolds for understanding the basic mechanism involved in the cell-material interactions and other factors that governs the cell growth and differentiation for the advancement of tissue engineering. Cell patterning and drug screening and delivery are also described.

Written by experts of biomaterials and tissue engineering fields from around the world, the book will be a great asset for multi-disciplinary communities as a single reference material. Therefore, Integrated Biomaterials in Tissue Engineering aims to stimulate a discussion of the future research directions in the biomaterial field toward tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
