Regenerative Medicine Applications in Organ Transplantation illustrates exactly how these two fields are coming together and can benefit one another. It discusses technologies being developed, methods being implemented, and which of these are the most promising. The text encompasses tissue engineering, biomaterial sciences, stem cell biology, and developmental biology, all from a transplant perspective. Organ systems considered include liver, renal, intestinal, pancreatic, and more. Leaders from both fields have contributed chapters, clearly illustrating that regenerative medicine and solid organ transplantation speak the same language and that both aim for similar medical outcomes. The overall theme of the book is to provide insight into the synergy between organ transplantation and regenerative medicine. Recent groundbreaking achievements in regenerative medicine have received unprecedented coverage by the media, fueling interest and enthusiasm in transplant clinicians and researchers. Regenerative medicine is changing the premise of solid organ transplantation, requiring transplantation investigators to become familiar with regenerative medicine investigations that can be extremely relevant to their work. Similarly, regenerative medicine investigators need to be aware of the needs of the transplant field to bring these two fields together for greater results. It bridges the gap between regenerative medicine and solid organ transplantation and highlights reasons for collaboration. It explains the importance and future potential of regenerative medicine to the transplant community. It illustrates to regenerative medicine investigators the needs of the transplant discipline to drive and guide investigations in the most promising directions. Review "This book succeeds in providing a detailed and comprehensible description of current and future therapies for solid organ replacement. It is unique in that it encompasses all solid organs and compiles a great deal of research. It will serve as a valuable reference for all those involved in the evolution of transplantation."
