Materials for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative medicine – Free for 4 weeks

A collection of articles covering materials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine from across RSC Publishing

Biomaterials ScienceIf you’re a regular reader of our blog hopefully you’ve already read about the launch of Biomaterials Science; but in case you haven’t Biomaterials Science is a new journal published by RSC Publishing in collaboration with the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences, Kyoto University, Japan. You can read about the scope of Biomaterials Science here, but briefly Biomaterials Science will cover the fundamental science of biomaterials through to their biomedical applications.

Biomaterials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine is an important topic covered by Biomaterials Science so to celebrate the launch, and highlight the area, we’ve made a selection of articles from across RSC journals free to read for 4 weeks.
