Book Description

Functional Nanomaterials for Regenerative Tissue Medicines covers nanomaterials in tissue engineering for regenerative therapies of heart, skin, eye, skeletal muscle, and the nervous system. It emphasizes fundamental design concepts and emerging forms of nanomaterials in soft and hard tissue engineering.

  • Fills a gap in the literature related to the application of nanomaterials in hard and soft tissue regeneration, repair, and restructure
  • Discusses a variety of applications including cardiac, kidney, liver, bone, wound healing, artificial organs, and dental
  • Presents advantages and limitations of various nanomaterials alongside future challenges

This book is essential for academics and industry professionals working in tissue engineering, biomedicine, biopharmaceuticals, and nanotechnology. It is primarily intended for materials researchers (to develop the platforms related to tissue regeneration), as well as clinicians (to learn and apply nanomaterials in their practice) and industrial scientists (to develop the commercial blood substitute products).
