This volume covers topics that encompass the use of components of the body, such as genes, proteins, and cells, to either foster tissue regeneration and remodeling in vivo for the purpose of repairing, replacing, maintaining, or enhancing organ function, or to engineer functional tissues in vitro for implantation in vivo as a biological substitute for damaged or diseased tissues and organs.
