Scaffolds for Tissue Engineering

Biological Design, Materials, and Fabrication

by Claudio Migliaresi and Antonella Motta

“The book Scaffolds for Tissue Engineering: Biological Design, Materials and Fabrication, edited by Migliaresi and Motta, is a very comprehensive textbook, with chapters written by many of the leaders in the tissue engineering field. The book begins with several chapters covering the structural and functional biology of body tissues, their healing processes and their regeneration. It then reviews synthetic and natural biomaterials that have been proposed for use as scaffolds, including body responses to the scaffolds. There are chapters on the fabrication of scaffolds and their evaluation in vitro and in vivo, which should be very useful for those developing tissue-engineered scaffolds. The book ends with a chapter looking towards the future commercialization of tissue-engineered scaffolds. In summary, this book should be useful for those doing research on tissue-engineered scaffolds, the companies developing new tissue-engineered products, and the clinicians looking to the future replacement of tissues in the clinic.”
