Two new books co-edited by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini

Electrophoretic Deposition of Nanomaterials
Edited by J. H. Dickerson and A. R. Boccaccini, Springer (2012), ISBN 978-1-4419-9690-9

This book is the first and only reference highlighting the basic research, materials science and engineering of the electrophoretic deposition of nanomaterials providing a comprehensive overview of contemporary bacis research, emerging technology and commercial and industrial applications associated with the electrophoretic deposition of nanomaterials.

Myocardial Tissue Engineering
Edited by A. R. Boccaccini and S. E. Harding, Springer (2012), ISBN 978-3-645-18055-2

This book, which contains chapters written by leading experts in the field of myocardial tissue engineering (MTE), gives a complete analysis and presents the latest advances in the field. The chapters cover all relevant aspects of MTE strategies, including cell sources, specific TE techniques and biomaterials used. The book also considers a complete range of biomaterials, examining different aspects of their application in MTE, such as biocompatibility with cardiac cells, mechanical capability and compatibility with the mechanical properties of the native myocardium as well as degradation behaviour in vivo and in vitro.
