This text combines the basic principles and theories of transport in biological systems with fundamental bioengineering. It contains real world applications in drug delivery systems, tissue engineering, and artificial organs. Considerable significance is placed on developing a quantitative understanding of the underlying physical, chemical, and biological phenomena. Therefore, many mathematical methods are developed using compartmental approaches. The book is replete with examples and problems.
