In recent years, the field of tissue engineering has begun, in part, to c- lesce around the important clinical goal of developing substitutes or repla- ments for defective tissues or organs. These efforts are focused on many tissues including skin, cartilage, liver, pancreas, bone, blood, muscle, the vascu- ture, and nerves. There is a staggering medical need for new and effective treatments for acquired as well as inherited defects of organs/tissues. Tissue engineering is at the interface of the life sciences, engineering, and clinical medicine and so draws upon advances in cell and molecular biology, mate- als sciences, and surgery, as well as chemical and mechanical engineering. Such an interdisciplinary field requires a broad knowledge base as well as the use of a wide assortment of methods and approaches. It is hoped that by bringing together these protocols, this book will help to form connections - tween the different disciplines and further stimulate the synergism underlying the foundation of the tissue engineering field.

"...will provide a very valuable laboratory aid for any researcher who wishes to enter the field. For the experienced cell biologist there are some gems of collected wisdom which he or she should find inspiring...a thoroughly recommended lab-bench book. . .This book should be in the library of every surgical research department. It is an excellent "how-to-do-it" work."-Journal of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh
"This book, well-edited by Morgan and Yarmush, contains a nearly exhaustive series of protocols related to biomaterials, cells, composites of cells and biomaterials, and measurement techniques. The editors are known and respected in the field, and, as such, were able to attract some of the stalwart tissue engineering investigators. . . an indispensable aid to students and seasoned investigators in tissue engineering."-FEBS Letters
"...a weighty tome of over 600 pages which can really be considered a tour de force, a great achievement in both organizational and editing skills from Morgan and Yarmush, the editors. I found several of the contributions outstanding...a useful acquisition."-Cell Biology International
