Biomaterials for Cell Delivery: Vehicles in Regenerative Medicine Pdf
The purpose of this book is to summarize key strategies and recent accomplishments in the area of developing cell/biomaterial constructs for regenerative medicine. The first section is a review of the state-of-the-art of biomaterial carriers and is divided into synthetic and natural materials. A subset of the latter are decellularized organs which retain the structure and some of the biological activities of the target organ. The bulk of the book is devoted to unique problems associated with key tissue and organ targets.
Key selling features:
Describes developing cell/biomaterial constructs for regenerative medicine
Reviews state-of-the-art of biomaterial carriers
Summarizes the unique problems associated with key tissue and organ targets
Discusses issues associated with clinical translation including quality control, manufacturing practices, nondestructive imaging, and animal models
About the Author
Aaron S. Goldstein, PhD, designs and evaluates two- and three-dimensional tissue microenvironments to guide stem cell differentiation into orthopedic tissue phenotypes. His research involves the combination of biocompatible materials and materials processing techniques to systematically and spatially vary the chemistry, topography, and mechanical properties of the biomaterial surfaces that are presented to cells. His interests also include the use of perfusion and mechanical stretch bioreactors to stimulate cell phenotypes through the activation of mechanotransductive signaling pathways. He is the author of more than 40 peer-reviewed research articles in the areas of biomaterials, cell adhesion, and tissue engineering. He earned a BS in chemical engineering from the University of California and a PhD in chemical and biomedical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. He was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Bioengineering at Rice University before joining the Department of Chemical Engineering at Virginia Tech in 1999.
