In recent years there has been tremendous progress in the area of tissue engineering research. This two-volume set, containing Smart Materials for Tissue Engineering: Fundamental Principles and Smart Materials for Tissue Engineering: Applications, provides a complete overview of the field. Volume one covers the fundamental principles underpinning the materials science developed for enhancing tissue regeneration, as well as those used for regulating the functions of living cells. Volume two focuses on the applications of different materials for replacing or facilitating tissue regeneration. It also provides examples of new materials that have been developed to control cell behaviours and tissue formation by biomimetic topography which closely replicate the natural extracellular matrix. This set comprehensively documents the recent advancements in smart materials for tissue engineering and provides an essential text for those working in materials science and materials engineering, in academia and industry.
Please see the webpages for the individual volumes in the set to access the eBook versions.
