Functional 3D Tissue Engineering Scaffolds : Materials, Technologies, and Applications, Hardback Book


In order to grow replacement tissues, 3D scaffolds are widely used as a template for tissue engineering and regeneration.

These scaffolds, which are typically `seeded' with cells, support the growth of new tissues.

However, in order to achieve successful tissue growth, the scaffold must meet specific requirements and are often `functionalized' to accentuate particular properties.

Functional 3D tissue engineering scaffolds: materials, technologies, and applications, is a comprehensive review of functional 3D scaffolds, providing information on the fundamentals, technologies, and applications. Part 1 focuses on the fundamentals of 3D tissue scaffolds, examining information on materials, properties, and trends.

Part 2 discusses a wide range of conventional technologies for engineering functional 3D scaffolds, leading the way to a discussion on CAD and advanced technologies for functional 3D scaffold engineering.

Chapters in part 3 study methods for functionalizing scaffolds to support a variety of in vivo functions whilst the final set of chapters provides an important review of the most significant applications of functional 3D scaffolds within tissue engineering. This book is a valuable resource for biomaterial scientists and biomedical engineers in academia and industry, with interests in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
