Summaries
Main Description
Emerging cell-based technologies have brought us to the brink of incredible biomedical advances like artificial skin and organ tissue generation. This state-of-the-art work brings bioengineers to the cutting edge of the micro and nanotechnologies involved. It covers the latest microfabrication and material synthesis developments that are paving the way to a whole new generation of diagnostic and therapeutic tools. Written by a "who's who" of pioneers in the field, the volume covers groundbreaking advances in microfluidic devices, surface patterning, 3D scaffolds, and techniques for engineering cellular mechanical properties and topography. The book systematically reviews emerging applications, including assisted fertilization and the bioengineering of neural, vascular, cardiac, cartilage, and bone tissues.
