"Craniofacial Growth and Development" represents a major new text on this cornerstone of dental and medical education. This book distills and explains the complex concepts that underpin this important subject, offering a comprehensive and high-level text that surveys both classic principles and the latest scientific advances. The intricacies of craniofacial growth and development are presented clearly and lucidly, rendering the vast and absorbing subject comprehensible and intelligible. "Craniofacial Research and Development" is based on decades of biomedical and bioengineering research and is supported with a cited research bibliography. Following the introduction of the general principles of craniofacial growth, each anatomical structure of the craniofacial region is discussed, allowing in-depth study of each subject on its own.Separate chapters are devoted to the impact of stem cell research and tissue engineering on the study of craniofacial growth and the clinical relevance of the subject area. A peerless editorial team brings together a group of luminaries from a variety of fields to produce this high caliber text on a subject of prime clinical and scientific importance, derived not just from traditional sources such as morphological, radiographic, and microscopic observations but also from contemporary approaches such as molecular biology, genetics, quantitative biology, and bioengineering. "Craniofacial Growth and Development" will appeal to undergraduate students who take growth and development, graduate students, postdoctoral research scientists, clinical residents and fellows, and clinicians in dentistry, medicine, physical anthropology, and sports medicine, and rehabilitation medicine.
