A volume in the new Principles and Applications in Engineering series, Tissue Engineering provides an overview of the major physiologic systems of current interest to biomedical engineers: cardiovascular, endocrine, nervous, visual, auditory, gastrointestinal, and respiratory. It contains useful definitions, tables of basic physiologic data, and an introduction to the literature. Then, the book reviews the status of tissue engineering of specific organs, including bone marrow, skeletal muscle, and cartilage. Readers will acquire a good understanding of the engineering and cell biological fundamentals of tissue engineering and will develop ideas for further development of this emerging and important field.
