BOOK Recommendation: Biomaterials for Organ and Tissue Regeneration

Three PANBioRA partners are the editors of "Biomaterials for Organ and Tissue Regeneration: New Technologies and Future Prospects" to bepublished in March 3rd. Nihal Engin Vrana, the scientific coordinator of PANBioRA, Dr. Julien Barthes from INSERM as well as Helena Knopf-Marques formerly involded in PANBioRA at PROTIP have created a very comprehensive overview summarising the current status quo of research related to the use of biomaterials in applications related to artificial tissues and organs.

Many other PANBioRA partners contributed to the different sections providing essential information on biomaterial, cell properties and cell types used in organ generation. A section on state-of-the-art in organ regeneration for clinical purposes is followed by a discussion on enabling technologies, such as bioprinting, on chip organ systems and in silico simulations.

Key Features

  • Provides a systematic overview of the field, from fundamentals, to current challenges and opportunities
  • Encompasses the classic paradigm of tissue engineering for creation of new functional tissue
  • Discusses enabling technologies such as bioprinting, organ-on-chip systems and in silico simulations

The book is targeting the following readership: Biomaterials/Biomedical Engineering/Tissue Engineering researchers; medical researchers in transplant surgery, cardiology, vascular surgery, and related areas; graduate students in biomedical engineering and medicine for courses such as biomaterials, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine
