    What Our Readers and Authors Say

    Handbook of Nanoindentation with Biological Applicationsedited by Michelle L. Oyen(UniversityofCambridge,UK)

    Nanoindentation is ideal for the characterization of inhomogeneous biological materials. However, the use of nanoindentation techniques in biological systems is associated with some distinctively different techniques and challenges. For example, engineering materials used in the microelectronics industry (e.g. ceramics and metals) for which the technique was developed, are relatively stiff and exhibit time-independent mechanical responses. Biological materials, on the other hand, exhibit time-dependent behavior, and can span a range of stiffness regimes from moduli of Pa to GPa eight to nine orders of magnitude. As such, there are differences in the selection of instrumentation, tip geometry, and data analysis in comparison with the black box nanoindentation techniques as sold by commercial manufacturers. The use of scanning probe equipment (atomic force miscroscopy) is also common for small-scale indentation of soft materials in biology. Readership: Graduates, postgraduates and researchers.

    Handbook of Intelligent Scaffold for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicineedited by Gilson Khang (ChonbukNationalUniversity,Korea)

    Discusses the great potential of scaffold applications ranging from novel biomaterials to novel fabrication methods and the targeted organ.

    Comprises chapters written with the student and industry professionals in mind.

    Maintains a good balance of clinical, commercial and experimental chapters.

    It has been recognized that tissue engineering and regenerative medicine offers an alternative technique to whole-organ and tissue transplantation for diseased, failed or malfunctioned organs. To reconstruct a new tissue by tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, triad components, such as (1) cells that are harvested and dissociated from the donor tissue, (2) scaffold substrates as biomaterials in which cells are attached and cultured so as to result in the implantation at the desired site of the functioning tissue and (3) growth factors that promote or prevent cell adhesion, proliferation, migration and differentiation by up-regulating or down-regulating the synthesis of protein, growth factors and receptors, are needed. This book concentrates on intelligent scaffolds, associated biomaterials and manufacturing in terms of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, from basic principles to the most recent discoveries. The areas of focus include ceramic and metal scaffold, intelligent hydrogel, electrospinning nanofiber, novel biomaterials for scaffold, novel fabrication methods for scaffold and scaffolds for the target organ. The book comprises theoretical, experimental, preclinical and clinical analyses of various properties of biomaterials, research methods, preparation techniques and some promising applications.

    Readership: Researchers in medicine, stem cell, regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, drug delivery system and biomaterials science.

Prof. Allan S. Hoffman University of Washington, USA The fast-developing field of nanomedicine uses a broad variety of materials to serve as delivery systems for drugs, genes, and diagnostic agents. This book is the first attempt to put under one cover all major available information about these materials, including both those that are still on experimental levels and those already applied in patients.
