L. Bonassar.

Covers introductory concepts in tissue engineering, including polymeric biomaterials used for scaffolds, mechanisms of cellbiomaterial interaction, biocompatibility and foreign body response, cell engineering, and tissue biomechanics. This knowledge is applied to engineering of several bodysystems, including the musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular tissues, the nervous system, and artificial organs. These topics are discussed in the context of scale-up, manufacturing, and regulatory issues.
