Overview

The progressive field of regenerative biology and medicine is occupied by a growing population of students, practitioners, administrators, and researchers who are embracing the science and looking towards the future. This fully-revised edition has been re-organized to highlight the different facets of regenerative biology and provide readers with an overview of the basics with a link to modern, clinically-oriented research and application. Coverage of a plethora of tissues and systems is complemented by information about the developmental plasticity of adult stem cells, the biology and use of embryonic stem cells and induced-pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, and the regeneration of appendages. The book goes beyond the lab to address the biological and bioethical issues and challenges in the field as well.

Regenerative Biology and Medicine, 2e has been completely revised with a new organization which follows the natural progression of discovery within the science. The chapters of Part I provide a discussion of the mechanisms and the basic biology of regeneration while Part II examines the strategies of regenerative medicine being developed for each organ system. Part III provides a perspective on achievements so far and what will be the exciting areas of the future. This approach embraces the diverse and expanding scientific audience being introduced to this field.
