On the Application of Solid Freeform Fabrication Technology to the Production of Tissue Engineering Scaffolds

Tissue engineering is a new and exciting technique which has the potential to create tissues and organs de novo. It involves the in vitro seeding and attachment of human cells onto a scaffold. These cells then proliferate, migrate and differentiate into the specific tissue while secreting the extracellular matrix components required to create the tissue. It… CONTINUE READING
