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. Specific applications of this technology include studies of tissue development and function, investigating drug response, and tissue repair and replacement. This area is rapidly becoming one of the most promising treatment options for patients suffering from tissue failure. This abundantly illustrated and well-structured guide serves as a reference for all clinicians and researchers dealing with tissue engineering issues in their daily practice.

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 ...

Editorial 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)
