Extreme tissue engineering; concepts and strategies for tissue fabrication.


Extreme tissue engineering; concepts and strategies for tissue fabrication.

Brown, Robert A.



252 pages




It is the engineering that is extreme, explains Brown (U. College London), not the tissue that results. He discusses how emerging concepts and strategies might be blended to revolutionize the engineering of very familiar tissues. Details of specific techniques or body sites are not his concern here. Among the topics are checking out the tissue groupings and the small print, making support-scaffolds containing living cells, whether three-dimensional complexity and layer engineering are worth the hassle, other ways to grow tissues, and towards four-dimensional fabrication. Figures and tables are available on a companion website.
