160+ interesting application problems over an entended biological base (biomedical, bioenvironmental, etc.) that were originally developed by the author throughout his 13 years of teaching this course at Cornell.
Looks at the structure and function of tendons and ligaments. Biological and synthetic biomaterials for their reconstruction and regeneration are reviewed, and their biomechanical performance is discussed.
Explores the different applications of carbon nanomaterials in drug and gene therapies and their use in tissue regeneration, biosensor diagnosis, enantiomer separation of chiral drugs, extraction and analysis of drugs and pollutants, and as antitoxents..
Examines the use of porous metals as novel bone replacement materials. With a strong focus on materials science and clinical applications, the book also examines the modification of metals to ensure their biocompatibility and efficacy in vivo.
Discusses the use of rapid prototyping in medicine; model creation; image acquisition; rapid prototyping techniques; applications in congenital and structural heart disease; and development and management of a rapid prototyping service.
