Elsevier introduces inventive biomaterials text

“Biomaterials: A Systems Approach to Engineering Concepts” and seven other new biomaterials and biomedical engineering books have been published.

Cambridge, MA, October 3, 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics business specializing in science and health, today announced the publication of Biomaterials: A Systems Approach to Engineering Concepts by Brian Love. By focusing on the mechanical needs of implants, disease states and current clinical needs, this inventive text encourages readers to design materials and systems targeted at specific conditions, and to identify the impact of their proposed solutions. Elsevier also published seven additional biomaterials and biomedical engineering books.

Biomaterials: A Systems Approach to Engineering Concepts is a useful resource for students, instructors and researchers of biomaterials and biomedical engineering. It covers topics such as cell biology principles; cell expression; bones and mineralized tissues; connective and soft tissues; metallic biomaterials; ceramic biomaterials; and polymeric biomaterials.

Dr. Brian Love is professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Dental and Biologic Materials at the University of Michigan, USA, where he heads a research group currently working on biomaterials and molecular and cellular biomechanics. He has held appointments at Virginia Tech, Wake Forest School for Biomedical Engineering, Georgetown School of Medicine and Georgia Institute of Technology, and has worked as an engineer for Texas Instruments. Dr. Love is on the editorial board of two international journals and was on the Dean's list for Teaching Excellence (based on student perceptions at Virginia Tech) in 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2004. He also was nominated for the WL Wine Award for Teaching Excellence in 2007.

The eight new biomaterials and biomedical engineering titles are:

In order to meet content needs in biomaterials and biomedical engineering, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books, which will educate the next generation of biomaterials and biomedical scientists, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.
