Textbook: Host Response to Biomaterials
The McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine is proud to recognize the efforts of Stephen Badylak, DVM, PhD, MD, professor in the Department of Surgery, a deputy director of the McGowan Institute, and director of the Center for Pre-Clinical Tissue Engineering within the Institute, as editor of the recently published textbook entitled “Host Response to Biomaterials,” which has been published by the Elsevier Academic Press.
The text addresses the impact of host response on biomaterial selection and includes contributions from leading authorities in regenerative medicine, biomaterials, immunology, and selected surgical disciplines, and promises to be a valuable resource for both research scientists and curriculum developers.
Dr. Badylak credits Ms. Allyson Lacovey with administrative assistance that was invaluable in making this publication possible.
Congratulations, Dr. Badylak!
