1st Edition

Hrsg. v. Mone Zaidi


Inhalt :: Content

Umfassendes, internationales Referenzwerk mit ausführlichen Beiträgen zu allen Aspekten der Knochenbiologie und Skelettforschung. Das Werk ermöglicht ein umfassendes Verständnis sowohl der Knochenphysiologie als auch ihrer Beziehung zu anderen Organen und der Pathophysiologie. Es dient als wichtige Ressource für alle, die sich mit Knochenforschung befassen, für die Forschung in anderen Bereichen, die mit Knochen in Verbindung stehen, wie z.B. Stoffwechsel und Immunologie, sowie für Ärzte, die Knochenerkrankungen behandeln. Der Online-Ausgabe liegt die 2020 erschienene, 4-bändige Printausgabe zugrunde.

Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

Encyclopedia of Bone Biology covers hot topics from within the rapidly expanding field of bone biology and skeletal research, enabling a complete understanding of both bone physiology and its relation to other organs and pathophysiology. This encyclopedia will serve as a vital resource for those involved in bone research, research in other fields that cross link with bone, such as metabolism and immunology, and physicians who treat bone diseases. Each article provides a comprehensive overview of the selected topic to inform a broad spectrum of readers from advanced undergraduate students to research professionals.

Chapters also explore the latest advances and hot topics that have emerged in recent years, including the Hematopoietic Niche and Nuclear Receptors. In the electronic edition, each chapter will include hyperlinked references and further readings as well as cross-references to related articles.

Key Features

  • Incorporates perspectives from experts working within the domains of biomedicine, including physiology, pathobiology, pharmacology, immunology, endocrinology, orthopedics and metabolism
  • Provides an authoritative introduction for non-specialists and readers from undergraduate level upwards, as well as up-to-date foundational content for those familiar with the field
  • Includes multimedia features, cross-references and color images/videos


Students and researchers in the fields of bone biology, tissue engineering, pathology and oncology in order to seek specific information on topics outside their immediate area of expertise, as well as diagnosing and treating bone diseases
