One Line Description
Provides cutting-edge advances in biologically inspired, biomimetically-designed materials and systems for developing the next generation of nanobiomaterials and tissue engineering

The book is intended for a wide audience including researchers, students, and industrial experts working in the fields of, but not limited to, materials science and engineering, biomaterials, bioengineering, cell biology, biomedical sciences, tissue engineering, nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanomedicine.

Humans have been trying to learn biomimetics for centuries by mimicking nature and its behaviors and processes in order to develop novel materials, structures, devices, and technologies. The most substantial benefits of biomimetics will likely be in human medical applications, such as developing bioprosthetics that mimic real limbs and sensor-based biochips that interface with the human brain to assist in hearing and sight.

Biomimetics: Advancing Nanobiomaterials and Tissue Engineering seeks to compile all aspects of biomimetics, from fundamental principles to current technological advances, along with future trends in the development of nanoscale biomaterials and tissue engineering.

The book details research, useful in inspiring new ideas, that seeks the principles and rules implemented by nature, such as self-assembly, a bottom-up approach in which molecular structures are assembled with little or no external intervention to generate nano, micro, and macro structures.
Other subjects covered in the book include:
• Cartilage tissue engineering as an emerging technology
• The fabrication methods of nanofibrous scaffolds and their potential utility in bone
tissue engineering applications
• Dental and craniofacial tissue engineering with bioactive polymers and
• Strategies to prevent bacterial adhesion on biomaterials
• The latest achievements in biomimetic ECM scaffolds prepared from cultured cells
• Graphene oxide and graphene as promising scaffold materials
• Stem cells as a source for building tissues or organs in the laboratory
