Implantable Drug Delivery Devices: Design of a Biomimetic...

Considers the effect of topographical features on cell behaviors such as orientation, adhesion, migration,
proliferation, and differentation.

Detailing the latest innovations in wound healing and reconstruction, Biomimetic Materials and Design
presents methods to

support and stimulate cellular processes such as migration and matrix deposition
develop synthetic and biological materials with enhanced in vivo properties
reproduce complex biological and physiological processes
modify the surface characteristics of synthetic materials, as well as events at the material-tissue

and discusses

signal selection, density, and accessibility
surface grafting, micropatterning, and microimprinting
the identification and refinement of protein sequences
the formation of "smart" biomaterials for control of drug distribution

Covering significant advances in the field and providing more than 2000 contemporary references,
Biomimetic Materials and Design is an essential source for biomedical engineers; physical, surface,
colloid, and polymer chemists; chemical engineers; biochemists; biophysicists; biotechnologists;
biomaterials specialists; materials scientists; and graduate-level students in these disciplines.
