Posted on October 2013

Weibo Cai, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Radiology and Medical Physics (, has finished editing a book entitled “Engineering in Translational Medicine”, which will be published by Springer in late 2013. This book is the result of more than a year’s hard work in organizing and editing, with about 80 contributors from around the world.

The book covers a broad spectrum of engineering research in translational medicine, where leaders in each research topic provide a state-of-the-art summary in 34 chapters on various topics such as: cell and tissue engineering (6 chapters), genetic and protein engineering (10 chapters), nanoengineering (10 chapters), biomedical instrumentation (4 chapters), and theranostics and other novel approaches (4 chapters).

Engineering in Translational Medicine will give readers a comprehensive and in-depth overview of a broad array of research areas, which can serve as an invaluable reference book for scientists, students, and clinicians, including both those new to engineering and those currently working in this area.

More details about this book can be found at the Springer website and at Amazon.
