Principles of tissue engineering by R. P Lanza( Book )

66 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Update of the rapid progress that has been achieved in tissue engineering, combining the prerequisites for a general understanding of tissue growth and development, the tools and theoretical information needed to design tissues and organs, as well as a presentation by the worlds experts of what is currently known about each specific organ system. This edition includes greatly expanded focus on stem cells, including adult and embryonic stem cells and progenitor populations that may soon lead to new tissue engineering therapies for heart disease, diabetes, and a wide variety of other diseases that afflict humanity. This up-to-date coverage of stem cell biology and other emerging technologies is complemented by a series of new chapters on recent clinical experience in applying tissue engineering
From X-rays to DNA : how engineering drives biology by W. David Lee( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Engineering has been an essential collaborator in biological research and breakthroughs in biology are often enabled by technological advances. Decoding the double helix structure of DNA, for example, only became possible after significant advances in such technologies as X-ray diffraction and gel electrophoresis. Diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis improved as new technologies--including the stethoscope, the microscope, and the X-ray--developed. These engineering breakthroughs take place away from the biology lab, and many years may elapse before the technology becomes available to biologists. In this book, David Lee argues for concurrent engineering--the convergence of engineering and biological research--as a means to accelerate the pace of biological discovery and its application to diagnosis and treatment. He presents extensive case studies and introduces a metric to measure the time between technological development and biological discovery. Investigating a series of major biological discoveries that range from pasteurization to electron microscopy, Lee finds that it took an average of forty years for the necessary technology to become available for laboratory use. Lee calls for new approaches to research and funding to encourage a tighter, more collaborative coupling of engineering and biology. Only then, he argues, will we see the rapid advances in the life sciences that are critically needed for life-saving diagnosis and treatment."--Publisher's description

Intelligent Materials( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book highlights the importance of smart material science in the 21st century, From the nanoscale to the macroscopic scale, intelligent materials are triggering a response across both dimensions and scientific disciplines! World class, leading experts in the fields of chemistry, physics and engineering have contributed to Intelligent Materials, highlighting the importance of smart material science in the 21st century. In this exceptional text the expertise of specialists across the globe is drawn upon to present a truly interdisciplinary outline of the topic. Covering both a bottom-up chemical, and top-down engineering approach to the design of intelligent materials the Editors of the book are bridging a vital gap between various scientific authorities. The influence of current research in this field on future technology is undisputed and potential applications of intelligent materials span nanoscience, nano technology, medicine, engineering, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and many other industries. This is an authoritative introduction to the most recent developments in the area, which will provide the reader with a better understanding of the almost unlimited opportunities in the progress and design of new intelligent materials. An indispensable reference for anyone contemplating working in the field! Comments on this book! "This will be the starting point for all researchers looking for industrial solutions involving smart materials. Congratulations to the Editors for providing such a vast and interdisciplinary book." P.-G de Gennes, France Prix Nobel de Physic 1991
