Tissue Engineering

What is tissue engineering?

Doctors use a combination of cells and bioengineered materials to restore, maintain, improve, or replace damaged tissue.

Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering uses any of a number of materials from naturally occurring proteins to synthetic materials to provide structural support for cells to develop and grow.

The goal is to make a functional structure out of the material that can support real tissue growth without the body rejecting it. In some cases, that structure itself is mixed with cells and growth factors that promote tissue growth and vitality. Artificial skin, bladders, small arteries, skin grafts, and cartilage are examples of tissues that have been engineered in modern laboratories; however, engineered tissues still have limited use in human patients.
