Tissue Engineering

SERIES EDITORS:
Kyriacos A. Athanasiou, University of California, Davis
J. Kent Leach, University of California, Davis
This series publishes concise books on aspects of a field that holds so much promise for providing solutions to some of the most difficult problems of tissue repair, healing, and regeneration. The field of Tissue Engineering straddles biology, medicine, and engineering, and it is this multi-disciplinary nature that is bound to revolutionize treatments for a plethora of tissue and organ problems.
Each book in the Series will be a self-contained treatise on one subject, authored by leading experts. Topics will include 1) Tissue Engineering knowledge on particular tissues or organs (e.g., articular cartilage, liver, cardiovascular tissue), but also on 2) methodologies and protocols, as well as 3) the main actors in Tissue Engineering paradigms, such as cells, biomolecules, biomaterials, biomechanics, and engineering design. This Series is intended to be the first comprehensive series of books in this exciting area.

Series ISSNs: 1944-0316 (print) and 1944-0308 (electronic)



Central Nervous System Tissue Engineering Central Nervous System Tissue Engineering
A. E. Wilkinson, Nic Leipzig, Aleesha M. McCormick
Combating neural degeneration from injury or disease is extremely difficult in the brain and spinal cord, i.e. central nervous system (CNS). Unlike the peripheral nerves, CNS neurons are bombarded by physical and chemical restrictions that prevent pr...
