Although cells have been cultured outside the body for many years, research has only recently begun to develop complex three-dimensional tissue constructs that will, ideally, mature into fully functional tissues and organs. Tissue engineering is an emerging field in the area of biotechnology that combines the principles and methods of life sciences with those of engineering for the purpose of regenerating, repairing, or replacing diseased tissues. In this review, we describe the recent advances… CONTINUE READING
