This volume addresses the current status and future possibilities of bioartificial organs, highlighting biomedical applications. Contemporary and emerging approaches to the development of bioartificial organs are explored. Presentations are interdisciplinary: scientists from the fields of materials and polymer sciences, bioprocess engineering and clinical medicine who do not normally interact at a single conference were brought together to deliberate. Emphasis is placed on the pancreas, liver, skin and bone, although other tissues are also covered.
