New Titles Added in Dentistry and Sports Medicine

New from STAT!Ref, Stem Cells in Craniofacial Development and Regeneration and Strength and Conditioning: Biological Principles and Practical Applications have recently been added to our growing collection of resources within over 50 healthcare disciplines.


New to our STAT!Ref Core Resources Collection for Dentistry and Dental Hygiene, Stem Cells in Craniofacial Development and Regeneration, is a must-have reference for craniofacial researchers, developmental biologists, tissue engineers, and dentists. It is also an important guide for students in dentistry and oral-maxillofacial surgery and related fields.A revealing look at the latest in craniofacial stem cell research and therapy.

With expert contributions from the forefront of craniofacial research and dentistry, Stem Cells in Craniofacial Development and Regeneration first introduces the development and regeneration of craniofacial tissues and organs, from neural crest cells to early tooth development. It then goes on to examine the different types of stem cells and their niches in craniofacial tissues, including what we can learn from rodent models. Concluding chapters survey the latest trends in stem cell–mediated craniofacial tissue bioengineering and stem cell therapies for treating damaged or lost tissue.

Stem Cells in Craniofacial Development and Regeneration:

  • Explains the mechanisms and biology of craniofacial morphogenesis and development
  • Describes bone, tooth, muscle, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) development and regeneration
  • Covers dental, muscle, salivary gland, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), and stem cells from bone marrow and adipose tissue
  • Highlights advances in bioengineering for the repair of bone, muscle tissue, teeth, roots, and periodontal tissue
  • Offers information on biological data integration and searching

Purchasers will want to bundle this resource with Introduction to Tissue Engineerin: Applications and Challenges, Treatment of TMDs and Peterson's Principles of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.


New to our STAT!Ref Resources for Sports Medicine, Strength and Conditioning: Biological Principles and Practical Applications provides the latest scientific and practical information in the field of strength and conditioning. This resource is an invaluable reference both for academic programs and for the continuing education of sports professionals.

The text is presented in four sections, the first of which covers the biological aspects of the subject, laying the foundation for a better understanding of the second on the biological responses to strength and conditioning programs. Section three deals with the most effective monitoring strategies for evaluating a training program and establishing guidelines for writing a successful strength and conditioning program. The final section examines the role of strength and conditioning as a rehabilitation tool and as applied to those with disabilities

Strength and Conditioning: Biological Principles and Practical Applications:

  • Integrates the latest research on physiological, anatomical and biomechanical aspects of strength and conditioning
  • Offers numerous practical examples of applications
  • Provides guidelines for writing and monitoring effective strength training programs

This resource is written at a level appropriate for a broad audience. Due to the amount of time it spends on the basic fundamentals of the biology behind strength and conditioning related physiology, it may be particularly useful for undergraduates, graduates, and new scientific researchers.

Purchasers will want to bundle this resource with Brunnstrom's Clinical Kinesiology, ACSM's Sports Medicine: A Comprehensive Review and Supplement-Goals Reference Guide and Research Digest.
