Principles of Tissue Engineering
Tissue engineering is a rapidly growing area of biomedical research with obvious commercial applications. This text aims to strike a balance between the diversity of subjects that are related to tissue engineering, including biology, chemistry, material science, engineering, immunlogy, and transplantation, while emphasizing those research areas that are likely to be of the most value to the field of medicine.
