P5738 Principles of Tissue Engineering, 2nd ed. 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.
S8066 Stem Cell Biology Stem cells are the focus of intense interest from a growing, multidisciplinary community of investigators with new tools for isolating and characterizing these elusive cell types. This volume provides a uniquely broad and authoritative basis for understanding the biology of stem cells and the current excitement about their potential for clinical exploitation. It is an essential work for investigators in embryology, hematology, and neurobiology, and their collaborators in regenerative medicine.
Z701475 Stem Cells Handbook S. Sell, ed., Humana Press, 2003, 528 pp., hard cover This survey the "state-of-the-science" of stem cell biology explains the origins of stem cells and describes how they function, how they can cause illness, and how they might be employed to cure or ameliorate disease.

In particular, the authors discuss the roles of stem cells in development and organogenesis, in normal tissue turnover, in the repair response to injury, and in carcinogenesis. They also explain how to obtain stem cells from different organs, culture them in vitro, and manipulate them for therapeutic use.
