Musculoskeletal Tissue Engineering introduces the fundamental concepts and translational applications of musculoskeletal tissue engineering, in combination with emerging technologies and materials. Sections discuss Tissues and Technologies, covering a range of musculoskeletal tissues, including bone, cartilage, ligament and more. Each chapter in this section details core tissue engineering principles specific to each tissue type. Next, a Technologies section looks at the range of biomaterials used in musculoskeletal tissue engineering, focusing on biocompatibility of materials and interactions at the material-tissue interface. Other chapters cover nanotechnology, 3D printing, gene therapy, tissue chips, and more.
This book offers an advanced reference text for researchers in biomedical engineering, materials science and regenerative medicine.

Professor Yupeng Chen is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Connecticut. He received his bachelor degree from Fudan University and pursued his Masters degree in biomedical engineering and Ph.D. in nanomaterials and nanomedicine at Brown University. Prof. Chen has a long-term interest in translating advances from nanotechnology into clinical applications. In particular, he focuses on engineering self-assembled Janus-base nanotubes into various non-covalent architectures for musculoskeletal tissue engineering. Prof. Chen also serves as the Principal Investigator of several competitive research grants from NIH and NSF. Prof. Chen has won several prestige awards, including the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from NSF in 2017 and the New Investigator Recognition Award from Orthopaedic Research Society in 2013 (he was the top-one awardee selected from 545 applicants all over the world). Prof. Chen also served as a reviewer for NIH musculoskeletal tissue engineering (MTE) study section multiple times and served as the chair of the musculoskeletal tissue engineering session in 2019 BMES annual meeting.
