Tissue Engineering,
Edition 3
Edited by Clemens van Blitterswijk and Jan De Boer

Publication Date: 16 Nov 2022
Tissue Engineering, Third Edition provides a completely revised release with sections focusing on Fundamentals of Tissue Engineering and Tissue Engineering of Selected Organs and Tissues. Key chapters are updated with the latest discoveries, including coverage of new areas (skeletal TE, ophthalmology TE, immunomodulatory biomaterials and immune systems engineering). The book is written in a scientific language that is easily understood by undergraduate and graduate students in basic biological sciences, bioengineering and basic medical sciences, and researchers interested in learning about this fast-growing field.

Key Features

  • Presents a clear structure of chapters that is aimed at those new to the field
  • Includes new chapters on immune systems engineering, skeletal tissue engineering (skeletal muscle, tendon, and ligament) eye, cornea and ophthalmology tissue engineering
  • Includes applied clinical cases studies that illustrate basic science applications
