A compilation of recent papers on tissue engineering, covering tissue
growth and development, tools and theoretical information needed to
design tissues and organs, and applications of tissue engineering to
diseases affecting specific organ systems. Contains sections on "in
vitro" control of tissue development, "in vivo" synthesis of
tissues and organs, models for tissue engineering, biomaterials, and
transplantation of engineered cells and tissues. Useful as a text for
students in biomedical engineering, cell biology, biotechnology, and
medicine at advanced undergraduate and graduate levels, and as a
reference for clinical and research laboratories.
