New Edition of Definitive Resource in Tissue Engineering Released Today

Book Co-Edited by Advanced Cell Technology's Robert Lanza, MIT's Robert

Langer, and Harvard's Joseph Vacanti

WORCESTER, Mass., Aug. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Three of the world's leading authorities in regenerative medicine, Robert Lanza, M.D., VP Research & Scientific Development for Advanced Cell Technology (OTC Bulletin Board: ACTC), Robert Langer, ScD, Institute Professor at MIT (recent recipient of the National Medal of Science), and Joseph Vacanti, MD, John Homans Professor at Harvard Medical School, have released the third edition of Principles of Tissue Engineering, the widely recognized definitive resource in the field of tissue engineering (Academic Press/Elsevier, August 15, 2007, Hardcover).

Principles of Tissue Engineering, Third Edition provides a much needed update of the rapid progress that has been achieved in the field, combining the prerequisites for a general understanding of tissue growth and development, the tools and theoretical information needed to design tissues and organs, as well as a presentation by the worlds experts of what is currently known about each specific organ system. The new edition includes greatly expanded focus on stem cells, including adult and embryonic stem cells and progenitor populations that may soon lead to new tissue engineering therapies for heart disease, diabetes, and a wide variety of other diseases that afflict humanity. This up-to-date coverage of stem cell biology and other emerging technologies is complemented by a series of new chapters on recent clinical experience in applying tissue engineering. The result is a comprehensive textbook that we believe will be useful to students and experts alike.

"Dr. Lanza is an industrial expert in the area of stem cells and regenerative medicine, with groundbreaking research that is widely respected throughout the scientific community," said William M. Caldwell, IV, Chairman and CEO of Advanced Cell Technology. "He has the unique ability to cut through the confusion and controversy, while articulating the issues and defining the benefits that surround the important research he and others are doing with embryonic stem cells for the betterment of humanity.

"Principles of Tissue Engineering, Third Edition includes contributions by almost 200 scientists and thought leaders, including Douglas Lauffenburger at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Bjorn Olsen at the Harvard Medical School, Robert Nerem at Georgia Institute of Technology, Alan Russell at the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, A. Hari Reddi at the University of California Davis, Ioannis Yannas at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, George Whitesides at Harvard University, Alan Trounson at Monash Univeristy, Anthony Atala at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Charles Vacanti at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, Eugene Bell at TEI Biosciences, and Laurie Zoloth at Northwestern University, among others.
