What is a wound, how does it heal, and how can we prevent scarring? The concept of wound healing has puzzled humans even before the advent of modern medicine.In this new, exciting and interdisciplinary book, its contributors address multiple questions related to the anatomy, biology, and metabolism of wound healing, and discuss cutting-edge bioengineering tools that diagnose and treat wounds.In recent years, bioengineering has tackled the problems of cancer, tissue engineering and molecular manufacturing. The broad spectrum of technologies developed in these fields could potentially transform the wound care practice. However, entering the world of wound healing research is challenging - a broad spectrum of knowledge is required to understand wounds and improve healing.This book provides an essential introduction of the field of wound healing to bioengineers and scientists outside the field of medicine. Written by leading researchers from various fields, this book is a comprehensive primer that gives readers a holistic understanding of the field of wound biology, diagnostics and treatment technologies.

Industry Reviews

"The Editors have undertaken the challenging endeavour to bring together the full diversity of recent and high impact discoveries in basic biology and translational applications of tissue repair/regenerative processes. The book highlights novel concepts in wound metabolism, biomaterial-based systems and bioprinting that provide perspectives on how to translate current knowledge into viable clinical approaches for treating patients with wound-healing pathologies. The book shall foster stimulating discussions and productive collaborations that will deliver the next generation of novel therapeutics in regenerative medicine."Sabine EmingUniversity of Cologne "Golberg and Yarmush have set an ambitious goal for themselves in summarizing the current state of the science of wound repair and regeneration. To meet this goal they have assembled many established luminaries and rising stars in the field. In my opinion, they have exceeded their objectives. The book is well organized and comprehensive, presenting students, researchers and clinicians the opportunity to truly understand this complex field and cutting edge interventions."Robert SheridanHarvard Medical School
