Biomaterials for Organ and Tissue Regeneration: New Technologies and Future Prospects examines the use of biomaterials in applications related to artificial tissues and organs. With a strong focus on fundamental and traditional tissue engineering strategies, the book also examines how emerging and enabling technologies are being developed and applied. Sections provide essential information on biomaterial, cell properties and cell types used in organ generation. A section on state-of-the-art in organ regeneration for clinical purposes is followed by a discussion on enabling technologies, such as bioprinting, on chip organ systems and in silico simulations.
- Provides a systematic overview of the field, from fundamentals, to current challenges and opportunities
- Encompasses the classic paradigm of tissue engineering for creation of new functional tissue
- Discusses enabling technologies such as bioprinting, organ-on-chip systems and in silico simulations
