This first textbook dedicated to the topic, written by a pioneer in the field, explains the principles of Nature's bottom-up engineering of biological materials, such as tissues, teeth, muscles, bones and tendons. He adopts a didactic approach and content structure to reflect the design principles, introducing basic biological, chemical, physical and materials science concepts essential to the understanding of the relationship between structure, properties and function in biological materials. Chapters dedicated to the elementary physical interactions and molecular building blocks, from simple sugars to complex, folded protein structures, provide the knowledge base for such advanced topics as the self-assembly of biological materials, the tuning of their properties and their processing. Case studies on important biological materials illustrate questions such as "How do plants move?", "What limits muscle performance?", and "How does the gecko effect work?"Biografía del autor:
Peter Fratzl is Director at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany. He received an engineering degree from the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, France, and a PhD in Physics from the University of Vienna, Austria. Before moving to Potsdam in 2003, he held professor positions at Universities in Vienna and Leoben in Austria. Peter Fratzl has received several scientific awards, including the Max Planck Research Award 2008 and the Leibniz Prize of the German Science Foundation in 2010. Matthew Harrington is an independent researcher in the Department of Biomaterials at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany, and recipient of a Humboldt Fellowship for postdoctoral researchers. He received his PhD from the University of California, Santa Barbara, USA, for a work on molecular-level structure-property relationships in the byssal threads of marine mussels.
