Regenerative Medicine: The Role of ELNs in Tissue Engineering

The field of tissue engineering is an interdisciplinary one that involves biology, engineering, and material science. It is based on the creation of bio-based alternatives to the repair or replacement of damaged tissues and organs within the human body. Tissue engineers aim to produce engineered tissue that has a similar structure and function compared to natural tissues by using the principles of cell biology, biomaterials science, and tissue culture techniques.
