About this book


This volume provides protocols for the generation of various biomaterials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications. The chapters in this book include a look at a range of biomaterials including hydrogels and other matrices (natural, synthetic, self-healing) for various applications including drug and gene delivery, surface modification and functionalization of biomaterials. In addition, techniques described include those for controlling biomaterial geometry, such as three-dimensional printing and electrospinning. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and thorough, Biomaterials for Tissue Engineering: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for scientists and engineers interested in this vital field of study.
