Since its publication more than a decade ago, the fifth edition of Principles of Tissue Engineering (PDF) has served as the definitive resource in the subject of tissue engineering. This rapidly evolving field is brought up to date in the most recent edition of the 5th edition of this book, which combines 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.
This ebook, like previous editions, creates a comprehensive work that strikes a balance among the diverse subjects that are related to tissue engineering. These subjects include chemistry, material science, biology, and engineering, among others. Additionally, this ebook places an emphasis on research areas that are likely to be of clinical value in the future.
The focus on stem cells has been significantly increased throughout this fifth edition, particularly with regard to induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, stem cell niches, and blood components derived from stem cells. Applications of this study have already been developed, including illness modeling, drug development, toxicity testing, and clinical therapy. This up-to-date coverage of stem cell biology and the application of tissue-engineering techniques for food production – is complimented 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. Additionally, this book contains a new section on the emerging technologies in the field.
- Presentation in full color throughout the entire document
- Contains a brand new part as well as chapters that focus on developing technology in the industry
- With a total of twenty-three parts, this book covers the fundamentals of tissue growth and development, as well as several methods to organ and tissue design, and it concludes with a summary of the most recent knowledge organized by organ system.
