    Salient Features

    "Coverage of basic, important fundamental concepts—Rather than review articles.
    Makes this book a practical guide in the field as tissue engineering changes, and helps students establish a conceptual framework within which to place further advances in the field.

    A four-part presentation—Part I quantitative cell and tissue biology; Part IIcell and tissue characterization; Part IIIengineering methods and design; and Part IVclinical implementation.
    Supplies students with the broad coverage that eliminates their need to supplement class notes with medical and methods literature.

    Emphasis on relevant time and length scales of physical-chemical processes in cell biology and medicine.
    Establishes a conceptual framework within which to place further advances in the field.

    Broad range of quantitative homework sets with solutions.
    Gives students extensive opportunity to apply learned concepts throughout the text."
