Biomaterials is written for you, the undergraduate engineering major in your 2nd year of study or later. It presents a balanced introduction to fundamental biomaterials concepts, while taking into account the multidisciplinary nature of the field. With an overall emphasis on tissue engineering, it covers classes of materials commonly used in biomedical applications, followed by the biocompatibility of materials with the biological environment. Carefully selected in-depth applications illustrate the intersection of biology and materials, preparing you to understand the scope of the field and make your own connections.

The 2nd Edition explores new topics in materials science and state-of-the-art biological techniques. New problems, examples and color images help introduce critical concepts.
