Extreme Tissue Engineering is an engaging introduction to Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (TERM), allowing the reader to understand, discern and place into context the mass of scientific, multidisciplinary data currently flooding the field. It is designed to provide interdisciplinary, groundup explanations in a digestible, entertaining way, creating a text which is relevant to all students of TERM regardless of their route into the field. Organised into three main sections: chapters 1 to 3 introduce and explain the general problems; chapters 4 to 6 identify and refine how the main factors interact to create the problems and opportunities we know all too well; chapters 7 to 9 argue us through the ways we can use leadingedge (extreme) concepts to build our advanced solutions. Students and researchers in areas such as stem cell and developmental biology, tissue repair, implantology and surgical sciences, biomaterials sciences and nanobiomedicine, bioengineering, bioprocessing and monitoring technologies from undergraduate and masters to doctoral and postdoctoral research levels will find Extreme Tissue Engineering a stimulating and inspiring text. Written in a fluid, entertaining style, Extreme Tissue Engineering is introductory yet challenging, richly illustrated and truly interdisciplinary. First introductory text in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine Truly interdisciplinary, serving students and researchers in the basic science, clinical aspects and regulatory aspects of the field Uses real life examples to illustrate and educate Written in an original and entertaining style by one of the top experts in the field Published in full colour with clear, studentfriendly illustrations
