About this book

Tissue engineering is a multidisciplinary field incorporating the principles of biology, chemistry, engineering, and medicine to create biological substitutes of native tissues for scientific research or clinical use. Applications of this technology include studies of tissue development and function, investigations of drug response, and tissue repair and replacement. Tissue engineering is rapidly becoming one of the most promising treatment options for patients suffering from tissue failure. This abundantly illustrated and clearly structured guide, written by leading experts, is intended to serve as a reference for all clinicians and researchers who deal with tissue engineering issues in their daily practice and for students studying tissue engineering at both the undergraduate and the graduate level. It will also be invaluable for professionals in related research areas, particularly those where cell and tissue culture is a new or emerging tool. The book is divided into three sections that present the latest findings in tissue engineering and their application in clinical practice. The first section discusses the basics and principles of tissue engineering, including scaffolds, cells, and technologies. The second and third sections then address in detail the tissue engineering of specific organs and tissue types. A visual approach is emphasized throughout, with numerous self-explanatory graphics, diagrams, and photos.

About the authors

Norbert Pallua is Professor, Chairman and Director of the Department of Plastic Surgery, Hand Surgery, Burn Center at the RWTH University Hospital, Aachen, Germany. Professor Pallua is recognized to be among the leading Plastic Surgeons in Germany. He is also nominated Honorary Professor and Director of several Universities. Professor Pallua is the author of numerous scientific and clinical publications and is a reviewer for several leading journals. He has been responsible for developing innovative methods of extensive facial reconstruction and has led research into tissue engineering, with a particular focus on soft tissue. Professor Christoph Suschek works in the laboratory of the Department of Plastic Surgery, Hand Surgery, Burn Center at the RWTH University Hospital in Aachen as leading biologist. Professor Suschek is the author or co-author of many journal articles presenting research related to tissue engineering approaches, such as ways in which the induction of inflammation might be used to stimulate adipose tissue formation.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This monograph concerns mesenchymal, bone marrow, neural, embryonic, osteochondral, cartilaginous derived stem cells and partially differentiated cells. … This is a good review book, especially given the rapid advances of cellular and molecular biology. I recommend this book for all audiences.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, August, 2014)
