Engineering Strategies for Regenerative Medicine considers how engineering strategies can be applied to accelerate advances in regenerative medicine. The book provides relevant and up-to-date content on key topics, including the interdisciplinary integration of different aspects of stem cell biology and technology, diverse technologies, and their applications. By providing massive amounts of data on each individual, recent scientific advances are rapidly accelerating medicine. Cellular, molecular and genetic parameters from biological samples combined with clinical information can now provide valuable data to scientists, clinicians and ultimately patients, leading to the development of precision medicine.
Equally noteworthy are the contributions of stem cell biology, bioengineering and tissue engineering that unravel the mechanisms of disease, regeneration and development.

Dr Tiago G. Fernandes is currently a Post-doctoral research fellow at the Institute for Biotechnology and Bioengineering, Lisbon, Portugal. His research interests are focused on the development of artificial cellular niches for studying the mechanisms that affect human stem cell pluripotency, and the cellular and molecular events that regulate stem cell functions. During his doctoral studies he also worked at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NY, USA, in the development of microscale platforms for high-throughput studies of stem cell fate.

Dr Maria Margarida Diogo received her PhD degree in Biotechnology from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) from January 2000 to April 2004. Her thesis was dedicated to the development of Bioprocesses for Production and Purification of Plasmid DNA for Gene Therapy and DNA vaccines. As a result of this work, a United States Patent was published in 2007. From April 2004 to March 2008 she received a post-doctoral fellowship to work in the field of Stem Cell Bioengineering and she is presently a Research Scientist at the Stem Cell Bioengineering Laboratory at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST).
