More About This Title Bioregenerative Engineering: Principles andApplications
Bioregenerative engineering is an emerging discipline based on applying engineering principles and technologies to regenerative medicine. It induces, modulates, enhances, and/or controls regenerative processes by using engineering approaches to improve the restoration of the structure and function of disordered or lost molecules, cells, tissues, and organs. This reference systematically summarizes bioregenerative engineering principles, technologies, and current research to help scientists understand biological regeneration and design new therapeutic strategies. Succinct and well-organized with a detailed table of contents to help readers pinpoint information, this reference:
Provides the fundamental theory and principles of molecular, cellular, and tissue regenerative engineering concurrently with experimental approaches
Presents the foundations of bioregenerative engineering, encompassing the molecular basis, the regulatory mechanism of regeneration, and the developmental aspects
Combines molecular and cell biology with potential applications
Addresses experimental design, methods, and modeling at the molecular/cellular/tissue levels
Covers the general mechanisms and technologies of bioregenerative engineering, as well as its application to the treatment of human disorders
Discusses the engineering tests and therapies for major organ systems
Presenting an in-depth introduction to the biological and engineering aspects of the field and an up-to-date overview of current research, this is a one-of-a-kind resource for scientific researchers and medical practitioners, as well as for graduate and undergraduate students in biomedical engineering, bioengineering, chemical engineering, molecular biology, and cell biology.
