Maintaining quality of life in an ageing population is one of the great challenges of the twenty-first century. This book and collection of illustrated CD lectures summarises how this challenge is being met by multi-disciplinary developments in specialty biomaterials, devices, artificial organs and in vitro growth of human cells as tissue-engineered constructs. Biomaterials, artificial organs and tissue engineering is intended for use as a textbook in a one-semester course for upper level BSc, MSc and MEng students.
