This book is the only book that has the latest research developments on smart-polymeric materials for biomedical applications which include drug delivery, tissue engineering, biosensors, wound healing and many other allied fields.
Tissue engineering has been recognized as offering an alternative technique to whole-organ and tissue transplantation for diseased, failed, or malfunctioned organs. This timely book focuses on the preparation and characterization of scaffold biomaterials for the application of tissue-engineered scaffolds. More importantly, it serves as an experimental guidebook on the standardization of the fabrication process and characterization of scaffolding technology.
The book begins with a discussion of issues in the field along with some background information. This is followed by an explanation of the law and an extensive chronology. Next is a biographical dictionary of individuals who have played a major role in genetic technology. This section concludes with a 13-page glossary. The second part of the volume is dedicated to guiding students to additional resources.
