  author={RD O’Dea and H Byrne},
By providing replacements for damaged tissues and organs, in vitro tissue engineering has the potential to become a viable alternative to donor-provided organ transplant, which is increasingly hampered by a shortage of available tissue. The complexity of the myriad biophysical and biochemical processes that together regulate tissue growth renders almost impossible understanding by experimental investigation alone. Mathematical modelling applied to tissue engineering represents a powerful tool… CONTINUE READING
