General description

This edition combines prerequisites for a understanding of tissue growth and development, tools and theoretical information needed to design tissues and organs, and applications of tissue engineering to diseases affecting specific organ systems. Few experts would have predicted the explosion in knowledge of gene expression, cell growth and differentiation, variety of stem cells, new polymers and materials available, or introduction of the first tissue-engineered products into the marketplace. This provides detailed analysis of research on all of the major systems of the human body and has new chapters on fetal tissue engineering and the universal cell.
