Building Tissues : An Engineers Guide to Regenerative Medicine (Hardcover) (Joseph W. Freeman &
about this item
In order to effectively replace and regenerate a tissue, engineers must be familiar with mechanics, diffusion, electrical conductivity, heat transfer, kinetics, and a host of other concepts that are frequently studied. Each of these concepts is exposed in this book through descriptive introductions followed by mathematical equations with example problems. After the concepts have been introduced, they will be applied to specific tissues and regenerative techniques. Students will be able to see how the concepts are applied differently from one tissue or structure to the next and how one concept may be more important to one tissue than it is to another.
