Description : Step-by-step, practical guidance for the acquisition, manipulation,and use of cell sources for tissue engineering Tissue engineering is a multidisciplinary field incorporatingthe principles of biology, chemistry, engineering, and medicine tocreate biological substitutes of native tissues for scientificresearch or clinical use. Specific applications of this technologyinclude studies of tissue development and function, investigatingdrug response, and tissue repair and replacement. This area israpidly becoming one of the most promising treatment options forpatients suffering from tissue failure. Written by leading experts in the field, Culture of Cellsfor Tissue Engineering offers step-by-step, practicalguidance for the acquisition, manipulation, and use of cell sourcesfor tissue engineering. It offers a unique focus on tissueengineering methods for cell sourcing and utilization, combiningtheoretical overviews and detailed procedures. Features of the text include: Easy-to-use format with a two-part organization Logically organized—part one discusses cell sourcing,preparation, and characterization and the second part examinesspecific engineered tissues Each chapter covers: structural and functional properties oftissues, methodological principles, culture, cellselection/expansion, cell modifications, cell seeding, tissueculture, analytical assays, and a detailed description ofrepresentative studies End-of-chapter features include useful listings of sources forreagents, materials, and supplies, with the contact details of thesuppliers listed at the end of the book A section of elegant color plates to back up the figures in thechapters Culture of Cells for Tissue Engineering givesnovice and seasoned researchers in tissue engineering an invaluableresource. In addition, the text is suitable for professionals inrelated research, particularly in those areas where cell and tissueculture is a new or emerging tool.
