Assoc. Prof. Tamer Uyar from Bilkent UNAM – Institute of Materials Science & Nanotechnology, is the editor of a new book “Electrospun materials for tissue engineering and biomedical applications: research, design and commercialization”.
Electrospinning, an electro-hydrodynamic process, is a versatile and promising platform technology for the production of nanofibrous materials for tissue engineering and biomedical applications. Electrospun Materials for Tissue Engineering and Biomedical Applications, examines the rapid development of electrospun materials for use in tissue engineering and biomedical applications. With a strong focus on fundamental materials science and engineering, this book also looks at successful technology transfers to the biomedical industry, highlighting biomedical products already on the market as well as the requirements to successfully commercialize electrospun materials for potential use in tissue engineering and biomedical areas. This book is a valuable resource for materials and biomedical scientists and engineers wishing to broaden their knowledge on the tissue engineering and biomedical applications of electrospun fibrous materials.
The editors of this book are Tamer Uyar and Erich Kny, and the book is published by Elsevier, Woodhead Publishing Series in Biomaterials (ISBN: 9780081010228).
Dr. Tamer Uyar is one of the world-known expert in the field of Electrospinning of Nanofibers by publishing over 100 peer-reviewed journal papers in this field with the interest of potential applications in Environmental/Filtration, Healthcare, Catalysis, Sensors, Food and Active Food Packaging, Energy, NanoTextiles and NanoAgriculture. Dr. Uyar is Founding Editor of the journal Electrospinning (by De Gruyter Open) and currently he is also serving in Editorial Board Member for Scientific Reports (by Springer Nature), Editorial Board of Journal of Nanomaterials and Editorial Advisory Board of e-Polymers. Dr. Uyar is the recipient of several prestigious International awards/fellowships including 2016 International Cyclodextrin József Szejtli Award and 2012 Fiber Society Distinguished Achievement Award and 2010 Marie Curie International Reintegration Grant (IRG) Fellowship. He also received numerous National awards given only under 40 years of age including 2014 TUBITAK Incentive Award, 2012 TUBA-GEBIP, 2010 METU Parlar Award and 2009 FABED Award
