Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering is a branch of biomedical engineering that combines biology with engineering to construct tissues or cellular products outside the body or to make use of the information gained to better control tissue repair within the body. Many new cellular therapies are being developed which create challenges for tissue functioning in engineering. The clinic's implementation of cell therapies and grafts requires the recognition and resolution of some difficult issues. Those include tissue harvesting, cell processing and isolation, safety testing, cell activation or differentiation, assay and medium growth, storage and stability, and issues around quality assurance and quality control. Tissue Engineering journal is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal focusing on tissue engineering science research and its clinical application.
