Filling the need for a lab textbook in this rapidly growing field,
A Laboratory Course in Tissue Engineering helps students develop
hands-on experience. The book contains fifteen standalone
experiments based on both classic tissue-engineering approaches and
recent advances in the field. Experiments encompass a set of widely
applicable techniques: cell culture, microscopy, histology,
immunohistochemistry, mechanical testing, soft lithography, and
common biochemical assays. In addition to teaching these specific
techniques, the experiments emphasize engineering analysis,
mathematical modeling, and statistical experimental design. A Solid
Foundation in Tissue Engineering and Communication Skills Each
experiment includes background information, learning objectives, an
overview, safety notes, a list of materials, recipes, methods, pre-
and postlab questions, and references. Emphasizing the importance
for engineering students to develop strong communication skills,
each experiment also contains a data analysis and reporting section
that supplies a framework for succinctly documenting key results. A
separate chapter provides guidelines for reporting results in the
form of a technical report, journal article, extended abstract,
abstract, or technical poster. Customize Your Courses with More
Than a Semester s Worth of Experiments The book is a convenient
source of instructional material appropriate for undergraduate or
graduate students with fundamental knowledge of engineering and
cell biology. All of the experiments have been extensively tested
to improve the likelihood of successful data collection. In
addition, to minimize lab costs, the experiments make extensive use
of equipment commonly found in laboratories equipped for tissue
culture. A solutions manual, available with qualifying course
adoption, includes answers to pre- and postla
