Bone Graft Substitutes and Bone Regenerative Engineering, 2nd Edition

Editor(s): Cato T. Laurencin, Tao Jiang

A valuable resource for people who work in all fields involving bone, this book is written by renowned researchers in academia, surgeons, industry leaders and regulatory specialists. This discussion of new technologies and strategies for bone regeneration, advanced materials, nanotechnology, stem cell science, and bone developmental biology are central pieces of significant research. Biomaterials scientists and engineers have tremendous knowledge at their disposal today when creating regenerated bone tissues. The convergence of this knowledge and disciplines evolved into a new field which this book defines as Regenerative Engineering. To represent the importance of the concept of convergence, and capture the excitement in this new field, the book was titled Bone Graft Substitutes and Bone Regenerative Engineering.

Regenerative engineering will ultimately help researchers and surgeons better regenerate individual musculoskeletal tissues and more complex organs. Successful regeneration of tissue and organ systems will rely on a multidisciplinary strategy integrating the biological principles involved in cell and developmental biology with advanced biomaterials, nanofabrication, biomechanics, and tissue engineering.
