Book Description

Offers a detailed introduction to the fundamental phenomena that govern cell adhesion and describes bioengineering processes that employ cell adhesion, focusing on both biochemical and biomedical applications. All industrially relevant issues of cell adhesion - from basic concepts, quantitative experiments, and mathematical models to applications in bioreactors and other process equipment - are examined.
