Summary The human body is unable to significantly self-repair injured organs and tissues, resulting in a medical and social problem. Offering a fresh approach for restoring functions of damaged organs and tissues, this book brings together approaches to regenerative medicine, ensuring that techniques learnt in one discipline are spread across other areas
