Dr. Lakshmi Nair, Editor of New Book on Injectable Hydrogels

Dr. Lakshmi Nair

Dr. Lakshmi Nair

BME Core faculty Dr. Lakshmi Nair has recently served as editor of a new book “Injectable Hydrogels for Regenerative Engineering”. 

Regenerative engineering, with its ability to foster novel therapeutic techniques and strategies, has emerged as the most versatile and innovative technology of the 21st century. The past few years have seen a significant interest in the development of injectable hydrogels as cell/bioactive molecule delivery system to realize the dream of regenerative engineering. Injectable Hydrogels for Regenerative Engineering is the first book to bring together the fields of injectable hydrogels and regenerative engineering to give a perspective of the emerging therapeutic strategies for a wide audience. The book explains synthetic approaches towards developing injectable hydrogels, and the clinical applications of injectable hydrogels for engineering various tissues.
