Description : What is bioengineering all about? How will it impact the future? Can it find the cure for diabetes and other chronic diseases? A long-awaited continuation of the 2004 book, Understanding the Human Machine: A Primer for Bioengineering, this volume intends to address these questions and more. Written together with 18 scientists active in the field, Max E. Valentinuzzi brings his decades of teaching bioengineering and physiology at the undergraduate and graduate levels to readers, giving a profound, and sometimes philosophical, insight into the realm of bioengineering.
