  • Presents a basic understanding and the theories of transport in biological systems
  • Uses real-world applications in the development and design of artificial organs, drug delivery systems, and tissues
  • Contributes numerous examples throughout the text with a strong discussion of the numerical methods used
  • Updates each chapter with the latest research developments
  • Incorporates new problems and selected complete solutions where appropriate


This will be a substantial revision of a good selling text for upper division/first graduate courses in biomedical transport phenomena, offered in many departments of biomedical and chemical engineering. Each chapter will be updated accordingly, with new problems and examples incorporated where appropriate. A particular emphasis will be on new information related to tissue engineering and organ regeneration. A key new feature will be the inclusion of complete solutions within the body of the text, rather than in a separate solutions manual. Also, Matlab will be incorporated for the first time with this Fourth Edition.
