Engineering of Functional Skeletal Tissues available in Paperback

This is the 3rd volume in a series of reviews centered on the single major topic of bone replacement, discussing the biology of stem cells and cell signals, the knowledge needed to make stem cell-engineered bone tissue a reality, and how to prevent bone allograft infection. Useful as a followup to its predecessors, and as a stand-alone reference, it will interest a broad audience from orthopedists and bioengineers to dentists.
