Description / Abstract:

Enables readers to take full advantage of the latest advances in biomaterials and their applications Advanced Biomaterials: Fundamentals, Processing, and Applications reviews the latest biomaterials discoveries, enabling readers to take full advantage of the most recent findings in order to advance the biomaterials research and development. Reflecting the nature of biomaterials research, the book covers a broad range of disciplines, including such emerging topics as nanobiomaterials, interface tissue engineering, the latest manufacturing techniques, and new polymeric materials. The book, a contributed work, features a team of renowned scientists, engineers, and clinicians from around the world whose expertise spans the many disciplines needed for successful biomaterials development. Chapters are grouped into three logical sections: Section One, Fundamentals, explores the basics of structure, processing, and properties as well as viable approaches to develop and design new biomaterials. Section Two, Processing, investigates emerging manufacturing techniques such as laser-engineered net shaping (LENS) and processes involved in the design of bioactive scaffolds and polymeric drug delivery systems. Section Three, Applications, examines tissue engineering, synthetic heart valves, blood substitutes, and other promising applications. Advanced Biomaterials is recommended for material scientists, biotechnologists, chemists, engineers, and medical professionals. With its integrated coverage of fundamentals, processing, and applications, it is also recommended for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students. All readers will gain an improved understanding of the full range of disciplines and design methodologies that are used to develop biomaterials with the physical and biological properties needed for specific clinical applications.
