Biomaterials: A Basic Introduction 1st Edition

Biomaterials is a multidisciplinary subject, involving materials science, engineering, cell biology, and medicine. This textbook therefore provides an appropriate balance between depth and broadness of coverage, sufficient to enable understanding of the most important concepts and principles at the right level by students from a wide academic spectrum. This project has been developed from extensive lecture notes created by Dr. Chen in the teaching of biomaterial at Monach U, since 2008.

About the Author

Qi-Zhi Chen earned her PhD in biomaterials from Imperial College London in 2007. She was previously an academic at Monash University. She was also formerly with the National Heart and Lung Institute London and the University of Cambridge. She has produced more than 100 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters. Dr. Chen’s research interests broadly cover polymeric, ceramic, metallic, and composite biomaterials for application in biomedical engineering. Her teaching interests include physics and various topics of materials science and engineering, in addition to biomaterials. George Thouas graduated with a master’s degree in biomedical sciences at Monash University, Melbourne, where he also earned his PhD in the same area in 2006. As an academic researcher, he specialized in developmental biology and reproductivemedicine, with a focus on cellular metabolism and mitochondrial function. He has also spent a major part of his career working in bioengineering research, enabling interdisciplinary projects in bioreactor design, medical devices, and novel biomaterials, with applications in tissue engineering and regeneration. Dr. Thouas has produced more than 50 publications, including peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, patents, and conference proceedings.
