Dr. Mohamed N. “Len” Rahaman and Dr. Roger F. Brown, both professors emeritus at Missouri S&T who co-taught the courses “Biomaterials” and “Tissue Engineering” at S&T for many years, recently co-authored a new textbook for biomaterials students.
Their book, Materials for Biomedical Engineering: Fundamentals and Applications, was published in November 2021 by John Wiley & Sons. The book is described as a “comprehensive yet accessible introductory textbook designed for one-semester courses in biomaterials.”
