Developments in tissue engineered and regenerative medicine products summarizes recent developments in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine with an emphasis on commercialization and product development. Features of current cell therapy and tissue engineered products which have facilitated successful commercialization are emphasized and roadblocks to successful product development are also highlighted. Preclinical and clinical testing of tissue engineered and regenerative medicine products, regulatory, quality control, manufacturing issues, as well as generating and securing intellectual property and freedom to operate considerations are presented. This book represents a complete 'how-to' manual for the development of tissue engineered and regenerative medicine products from conceptualization to clinical trial to manufacturing.

Key Features

  • Addresses practical considerations for the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine from the perspective of the biotechnology industry
  • Written as a manual for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine product development applicable to the US and EU
  • Illustrates pathway integration of science and business required for successful product development


Industry professionals and entrepreneurial academics contemplating new start-ups focused on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine; Entrepreneurially minded students interested in biotechnology
