About this book

This book presents current trends and developments in the rapidly growing field of biomimetics. It takes an application-oriented approach to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of this field: Experts, from academic as well as professional backgrounds, contribute to this book by describing and presenting state-of-the-art experiments and practical developments. A strong emphasis is put on the various possibility to apply biomimetics in tissue engineering, regenerative surgery, neurosurgery for clinical applications.
