About this book

This book reviews the most recent developments in the field of osteochondral tissue engineering (OCTE) and presents challenges and strategies being developed that face not only bone and cartilage regeneration, but also establish osteochondral interface formation in order to translate it into a clinical setting. Topics include nanotechnology approaches and biomaterials advances in osteochondral engineering, advanced processing methodology, as well as scaffolding and surface engineering strategies in OCTE. Hydrogel systems for osteochondral applications are also detailed thoroughly. Osteochondral Tissue Engineering: Nanotechnology, Scaffolding-Related Developments and Translation is an ideal book for biomedical engineering students and a wide range of established researchers and professionals working in the orthopedic field.

About the authors

Dr. Joaquim Miguel Oliveira, BSc, PhD is a senior researcher “Investigador FCT 2012 and FCT 2015”, at the Portuguese Government Associate Laboratory ICVS/3B´s, University of Minho. Currently, he is a volunteer lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine, U. Porto and Dept. of Polymer Eng., UM. Since 2001, he has been involved in the development of biomaterials from natural origin for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. His research activities have been increasingly focused on nanomedicine, stem cells and 3D in vitro models of disease.

Dr. Sandra Pina, MsC, PhD, is an assistant researcher at the Portuguese Government Associate Laboratory ICVS/3B’s, University of Minho. Her research interests include bioresorbable calcium phosphate-based nanomaterials and ionic incorporated calcium phosphates nanocomposites for internal fracture fixation in traumatology, cranio-maxillofacial, spine and orthopaedic surgery.

Prof. Rui L. Reis, PhD, DSc, Hon. Causa MD (UGranada) is the Vice-Rector for R&D, Director of the 3B’s Research Group and of the ICVS/3B´s, of UMinho – Portugal. He is the CEO of the European Institute of Excellence on TERM, and the President-elect of Global TERMIS (Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine International Society) and the editor-in-chief of the JTERM.

Prof. Julio San Roman, PhD, is director of Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnología de Polímeros CSIC. His scientific activities are centred in the study and development of polymer systems for biomedical applications, and specifically in tissue engineering, polymer drugs and drug delivery systems.
