Handbook of Tissue Engineering Scaffolds: Volume Two provides a comprehensive and authoritative review on recent advancements in the application and use of composite scaffolds in tissue engineering. Chapters focus on specific tissue/organ (mostly on the structure and anatomy), the materials used for treatment, natural composite scaffolds, synthetic composite scaffolds, fabrication techniques, innovative materials and approaches for scaffolds preparation, host response to the scaffolds, challenges and future perspectives, and more. Bringing all the information together in one major reference, the authors systematically review and summarize recent research findings, thus providing an in-depth understanding of scaffold use in different body systems.

Key Features

  • Dedicated to the specialist topic of composite scaffolds, featuring all human body systems
  • Covers basic fundamentals and advanced clinical applications
  • Includes up-to-date information on preparation methodology and characterization techniques
  • Highlights clinical data and case studies


Graduates, students, researchers in the fields of tissue engineering, biomaterials and regenerative medicine, biomedical science and engineering, materials science and engineering, nanoscience and engineering, biomedical nanotechnology, biotechnology
