This book covers the basics of the biomaterials science its applications to bone tissue engineering. The introductory section describes the most necessary concepts and techniques related to the cell and molecular biology with a particular focus on evaluating the biocompatibility property. The layout of this book facilitates easier understanding of the area of bone tissue engineering. The book integrates the Materials Science and Biological Science. It covers processing and basic material properties of various biocompatible metals and ceramics-based materials, in vitro and in vivo biocompatibility and toxicity assessment in the context of bone tissue engineering, and  processing and properties of metal-, ceramic- and polymer-based biocomposites, including the fabrication of porous scaffold materials.  The book can be used as a textbook for  senior undergraduate and graduate coursework. It will also be a useful reference for researchers and professionals working in the area.

Editorial Reviews

"'Biomaterials for Musculoskeletal Regeneration: Concepts' provides in detail some fundamental information about materials, biomaterials, and to a lesser degree cells and cell-material interactions and seeks to introduce the basic concepts of biomaterial science pertaining to musculoskeletal regeneration from a material science perspective. It is best suited to undergraduate and graduate students and other scientists just entering the field. . a worthy addition to the library of any Materials Scientist curious about the world of biomaterials for hard tissue repair." (Yusuf M. Khan and Lakshmi S. Nair, Journal of Materials Science, August, 2016)
