Kisaalita (cellular bioengineering, U. of Georgia) assembles the current theoretical and practical knowledge about three-dimensional cell systems used in drug discovery, but points out that such systems have potential applications in other areas where there is interest in tissue engineering and/or cell-based biosensors. He developed the textbook from and for a three-semester course for graduate students in bioengineering, drug discovery, and bio-nano-technology. After introductory chapters, it covers three-dimensional versus two-dimensional cultures, emerging design principles, and technology deployment challenges and opportunities. Among his topics are biosensors and bioassays, comparative structure and function, spatial and temporal micro-environmental factors, ready-to-use commercial three-dimensional plates, and ideal case study design.
