Biointegration of Medical Implant Materials, Second Edition, provides a unique and comprehensive review of recent techniques and research into material and tissue interaction and integration. New sections discuss soft tissue integration, with chapters on the biocompatibility of engineered stem cells, corneal tissue engineering, and vascular grafts. Other sections review tissue regeneration, inorganic nanoparticles for targeted drug delivery, alginate based drug delivery devices, and design considerations, with coverage of the biocompatibility of materials and their relevance to drug delivery and tissue engineering. With its distinguished editor and team of international contributors, this book is ideal for medical materials scientists and engineers in industry and academia.

Dr. Chandra P. Sharma is former Senior Scientist G and Head, Biomedical Technology Wing, Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST), Trivandrum and has been Head, Biosurface Technology Division, SCTIMST, Trivandrum from January 1980 to February 2014. He has also been Associate Head, Biomedical Technology Wing, and Associate Dean, PhD Affairs, SCTIMST Trivandrum. Presently he is Adjunct Professor, Department of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Manipal University. His basic activities relate understanding of blood/tissue - material interactions at the interface. In case of chitosan, an encouraging wound healing material, his group demonstrated during 1990s that its hemostatic potential is independent of classical coagulation cascade and appears to be an interaction between the cell membrane of erythrocytes and chitosan. His research interests include: biomaterials and artificial organs and nano-systems for oral delivery of insulin.
