Summary : Laser-assisted bioprinting (LAB) is an emerging technology in the field of tissue engineering. Its physical mechanism makes it possible to print cells and liquid materials with a cell-level resolution. By giving tissue engineers control over cell density and organization of 3D tissue constructs, LAB holds much promise for fabricating living tissues with physiological functionality. After introducing the rationale of applying LAB to tissue engineering, we present exhaustively the physical parameters related to the laser-induced forward transfer technique (LIFT), which is implemented in LAB. These parameters are critical to controlling the cell printing process and must work together to print viable cell patterns with respect to cell-level histological organization and to high-throughput manufacturing. After describing the experimental requirements that should be considered to fabricate 3D tissues by LAB, we present some of the main breakthroughs, including multicomponent printing, 3D printing approaches, and bioprinting in vivo that may serve in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

Summary : This book offers readers a valuable overview of recent advances in biomedical engineering, as applied to the modern dentistry. It begins by studying the biomaterials in dentistry, and materials used intraoperatively during oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures. Next, it considers the subjects in which biomedical engineers can be influential, such as 3-dimensional (3D) imaging, laser and photobiomodulation, surface modification of dental implants, and bioreactors. Hard and soft tissue engineerings in dentistry are discussed, and some specific and essential methods such as 3D-printing are elaborated. Presenting particular clinical functions of regenerative dentistry and tissue engineering in treatment of oral and maxillofacial soft tissues is the subject of a separate chapter. Challenges in the rehabilitation handling of large and localized oral and maxillofacial defects is a severe issue in dentistry, which are considered to understand how bioengineers help with treatment methods in this regard. Recent advances in nanodentistry is discussed followed by a chapter on the applications of stem cell-encapsulated hydrogel in dentistry.Periodontal regeneration is a challenging issue in dentistry, and thus, is going to be considered separately to understand the efforts and achievements of tissue engineers in this matter. Oral mucosa grafting is a practical approach in engineering and treatment of tissues in ophthalmology, which is the subject of another chapter. Microfluidic approaches became more popular in biomedical engineering during the last decade; hence, one chapter focuses on the advanced topic of microfluidics technologies using oral factors as saliva-based studies. Injectable gels in endodontics is a new theme in dentistry that bioengineering skills can advance its development, specifically by producing clinically safe and effective gels with regeneration and antibacterial properties. Engineered products often need to be tested in vivo before being clinical in dentistry; thus, one chapter is dedicated to reviewing applicable animal models in dental research. The last chapter covers the progress on the whole tooth bioengineering as a valuable and ultimate goal of many dental researchers. Offers readers an interdisciplinary approach that relates biomedical engineering and restorative dentistry Discusses recent technological achievements in engineering with applications in dentistry Provides useful tool to dental companies for future product planning, specifically to biomedical engineers engaged in dental research

Summary : Regenerative Engineering and Developmental Biology: Principles and Applications examines cutting-edge developments in the field of regenerative engineering. Specific attention is given to activities that embrace the importance of integrating developmental biology and tissue engineering, and how this can move beyond repairing damage to body parts to instead regenerate tissues and organs. The text furthermore focusses on the five legs of the field of regenerative engineering, including: materials, developmental biology, stem cells, physics, and clinical translation. This book was written by leading developmental biologists; each chapter examines the processes that these biologists study and how they can be advanced by using the tools available in tissue engineering/biomaterials. Individual chapters are complete with concluding remarks and thoughts on the future of regenerative engineering. A list of references is also provided to aid the reader with further research. Ultimately, this book achieves two goals. The first encourages the biomedical community to think about how inducing regeneration is an engineering problem. The second goal highlights the discoveries with animal regeneration and how these processes can be engineered to regenerate body parts. Regenerative Engineering and Developmental Biology: Principles and Applications was written with undergraduate and graduate-level biomedical engineering students and biomedical professionals in mind.
