Biomaterials for 3D Tumor Modeling reviews the fundamentals and most relevant areas of the latest advances of research of
3D cancer models, focusing on biomaterials science, tissue engineering, drug delivery and screening aspects. The book reviews
advanced fundamental topics, including the causes of cancer, existing cancer models, angiogenesis and inflammation during
cancer progression, and metastasis in 3D biomaterials. Then, the most relevant biomaterials are reviewed, including methods
for engineering and fabrication of biomaterials. 3D models for key biological systems and types of cancer are also discussed,
including lung, liver, oral, prostate, pancreatic, ovarian, bone and pediatric cancer.
This book is suitable for
those working in the disciplines of materials science, biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, drug delivery and regenerative
