About this book

The book is an excellent reference for scientists, researchers and students working in the field of areas of biopolymeric biomaterials, biomedical engineering, therapeutics, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The book is divided into two parts: Part I will focus on the tissue engineering and Part II focuses on therapeutics, functionalization and computer-aided techniques. The book consists of 13 chapters contributed by 20 international contributors who are leading experts in the field of biopolymers and its applications. It will focus on the advancements of chitin and chitosan in regenerative medicine. 

Regenerative medicine in tissue engineering is the process of replacing or regenerating human cells, tissues, or organs to restore or establish normal function. It is an incredibly progressive field of medicine that may, in the near future, help with the shortage of life-saving organs available through donation for transplantation vis-a-vis regenerative medicine focuses on therapeutics, functionalization and computer-aided techniques.

It also covers physical and chemical aspects of chitin and chitosan, structural modifications for biomedical applications, chitosan based scaffolds and biomodelling in tissue engineering, nanomedicines and therapeutic applications. With the broad range of applications, the world is waiting for biopolymers to serve as the basis for regenerative medicine and biomedical applications.

About the authors

Dr. Pradip Kumar Dutta obtained his M.Sc. (Chemistry) and PhD (Polymer Chemistry) from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in 1987 and 1993, respectively. He started his career as a research scientist in Birla Research Institute, Nagda, Madhya Pradesh, India in 1992, before awarding his PhD degree. His strong interest in academics drew him to one of the best engineering institutes, Shri G.S. Institute of Technology & Science (SGSITS) in Indore, Madhya Pradesh in1993. He served there for about 10 years with different posts like lecturer, senior lecturer in chemistry and coordinator for Continuing Education Program (All India Council for Technical Education, Govt. of India). In 2002, Dr. Dutta joined as Reader in Chemistry in Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology (Deemed University), Allahabad, India. His progress in academic activities through teaching, research projects, guiding doctoral and post-doctoral students, research collaboration with the liking researchers in India and abroad is continuing. His research interests includes synthesis and modification of polymers, nanomaterials/composites, functional polymers, drug delivery, wound management, tissue engineering, food preservation, etc., He has about 200 papers published in national and international journals, 18 book articles/chapters, and delivered 20 hours video-lecture programme, and prepared 18 course module. He has already supervised 16 M.Sc., 18 M.Tech./M.Phil./M.Pharma and 9 PhD thesis. Presently, 5 PhD students are working under him. He was awarded Commonwealth Academic Staff Fellowship-2007 and visited York University, York, UK. He was also awarded Chinese Academy of Sciences & Third World Academy of Sciences (CAS-TWAS) visiting scholar fellowship 2004, 2006 and 2009 and visited Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Changchun, China for collaborative research work. Beside these, Dr. Dutta extensively visited different countries like South Korea, Japan, Turkey, Switzerland, USA for academic purposes. He is the Founder Editor of an International Journal of Asian Chitin Journal since 2005, Founder Member of Indian Chitin and Chitosan Society, reviewer of various international journals, and Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry (UK).
