About the Authors
  • A comprehensive text in the field of biomaterials science and tissue engineering, covering fundamental principles and methods related to processing-microstructure-property linkages as applied to biomaterials science. Essential concepts and techniques of the cell biology are discussed in detail, with a focus quantitatively and qualitatively evaluating cell-material interaction. It gives detailed discussion on the processing, structure and properties of metals, ceramics and polymers, together with techniques and guidelines. Comprehensive coverage of in vitro and in vivo biocompatibility property evaluation of materials for bone, neural as well as cardiovascular tissue engineering applications, together with representative protocols. Supported by several multiple-choice questions, fill in the blanks, review questions, numerical problems and solutions to selected problems, this is an ideal text for undergraduate and graduate students in understanding fundamental concepts and the latest developments in the field of biomaterials science.

    • Discusses bending stresses, combined stresses and stress concentration
    • Includes comprehensive analysis of different types of joints including cotter, riveted and welded joints
    • Aids understanding by discussing concepts with the help of solved problems wherever necessary

    Reviews & endorsements

    Advance praise: ‘This book emphasizes the fundamentals of both Materials and Biological Sciences. On the Materials science front, it contains chapters which provide non-specialists with a fundamental understanding on the conventional and advanced manufacturing techniques as well as mechanical properties. Clearly, the strength of this textbook lies in the clear description of the in vitro and in vivo biocompatibility assessment protocols, an asset for non-biologists. The conclusion presents a number of chapters describing case studies, primarily from the author's own research. The number of problem sets and assignments are also important attributes.' Cato T. Laurencin, Chief Executive Officer, Connecticut Institute for Clinical and Translational Science, University of Connecticut

    Advance praise: ‘The book is extremely well structured and every chapter is critical for anyone planning to design medical devices or implants. For example, the inclusion of a chapter on biofilms is a wonderful addition and you will not normally find this in a biomaterials text. For the last thirty years I have been teaching graduate level materials science both in the US and India. This would be a book I would make a mandatory course reference, as I have wanted to include more biological considerations into the standard materials science course.' Shantikumar Nair, Director, Center for Nanosciences, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham University Kochi, India

    Bikramjit Basu, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
    Bikramjit Basu is Professor at the Materials Research Center, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. He received his Ph.D. from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium in March 2001. His research spans to areas of biomaterials science, biophysics, ceramics and tribological science with applications in key areas, including reconstructive surgery involved in orthopedics and external field induced ex-vivo tissue formation. He has published more than 150 peer-reviewed research papers with 20 papers in the Journal of American Ceramic Society. In recognition of his contributions to the field of ceramic and biomaterials science, he received noteworthy awards from the Indian National Science Academy (2005), Metallurgist of the Year award (2010) from the Ministry of Steel, Government of India and lately, NASI-Scopus Young Scientist Award, 2010 from Elsevier. He is the first and only Indian to date to receive the prestigious Robert L. Coble Award for Young Scholars from the American Ceramic Society in 2008.
