Summary

This book will examine the relevant biological subjects involved in biomimetic microengineering as well as the design and implementation methods of such engineered microdevices. Physiological topics covered include regeneration of complex responses of our body on a cellular, tissue, organ, and inter-organ level. Technological concepts in cell and tissue engineering, stem cell biology, microbiology, biomechanics, materials science, micro- and nanotechnology, and synthetic biology are highlighted to increase understanding of the transdisciplinary methods used to create the more complex, robust biomimetic engineered models. The effectiveness of the new bioinspired microphysiological systems as replacements for existing in vitro or in vivo models is explained through sections that include the protocols to reconstitute three-dimensional (3D) structures, recapitulate physiological functions, and emulate the pathophysiology of human diseases. This book will also discuss how researchers can discover bridge technologies for disease modeling and personalized precision medicine.
