Regenerative Biology and Medicine, Second Edition - Winner of a 2013 Highly Commended BMA Medical Book Award for Medicine - discusses the fundamentals of regenerative biology and medicine. It provides a comprehensive overview, which integrates old and new data into an ever-clearer global picture. The book is organized into three parts. Part I discusses the mechanisms and the basic biology of regeneration, while Part II deals with the strategies of regenerative medicine developed for restoring tissue, organ, and appendage structures. Part III reflects on the achievements of regenerative biology and medicine; future challenges; bioethical issues that need to be addressed; and the most promising developments in regenerative medicine. The book is designed for multiple audiences: undergraduate students, graduate students, medical students and postdoctoral fellows, and research investigators interested in an overall synthesis of this field. It will also appeal to investigators from fields not directly related to regenerative biology and medicine, such as chemistry, informatics, computer science, mathematics, physics, and engineering.

  • Highly Commended 2013 BMA Medical Book Award for Medicine
  • Includes coverage of skin, hair, teeth, cornea, and central neural tissues
  • Provides description of regenetive medicine indigestive, respiratory, urogenital, musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular systems
  • Includes amphibians as powerful research models with discussion ofappendage regeneration in amphibians and mammals
