The Springer Reference book series “Biomedical Engineering - Tissue Engineering and Regeneration” covers everything from the basic principles of tissue regeneration to current state-of-the-art tissue engineering of specific tissues and organs. It is therefore of great value, not only for experienced researchers, but also for advanced students and practitioners from other areas of expertise.
What makes the series outstanding, however, is its innovative concept of being continuously updated and printable on demand, keeping the books up to date with the latest state-of-the-art.
The entire series is highly influenced by the Austrian Cluster for Tissue Regeneration, with many members among the writers and editors.
The following books have been published so far:
3D Printing and Biofabrication
This reference work provides an in-depth introduction to 3D printing and biofabrication and covers the recent advances in additive manufacturing for tissue engineering.
Vascularization for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative
This volume presents the basic principles of angiogenesis induction. Both the established fundamentals in the field as well as new trends in the vascularization of engineered tissues are discussed. The authors refer to current studies of dual-level approaches to engineer vascularized tissue composites.
Cell Engineering and Regeneration
This book presents the origins of cells for tissue engineering and regeneration with a particular emphasis on current understanding of tissue regeneration based on embryology and evolution studies
Tissue-Engineered Vascular Grafts
This volume aims to cover all the relevant aspects of Vascular Tissue Engineering (VTE) and novel alternatives to develop vascular grafts for clinical applications. Furthermore, the reader gets an insight into various approaches, technologies and methods to better understand the complexity of blood surface and cell interactions in VTE.
Peripheral Nerve Tissue Engineering and Regeneration
This updatable book provides an accessible informative overview of the current state of the art in nerve repair research.
The first three chapters are already available online and more will be added soon.
All books are published in cooperation with TERMIS (Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society) and hence access is free for TERMIS members! The books are available and can be printed on demand.
