Tissue engineering

Tissue engineering

Tissue Engineering is a multidisciplinary scientific field working on the development of lab grown tissues, such as organs, muscle tissues, or specific cell types, by combining expertise from synthetic biology, molecular biology, biology, chemistry, material science, and mathematics.

The field is multidisciplinary in nature, requiring collaborations between cell and molecular biology, clinicians, materials scientists, mathematicians, and more. For example, mathematical models are used to form a holistic understanding of complex biological processes in evolving tissues. The combination of biomimetic materials sciencematerials science and stem cell biology with mathematical models is used to determine which tissue engineering strategies are most likely to be successful. Such an integration of mathematical models with experimentation in an iterative framework where each informs the other offers a way to better understand tissue regeneration.
