Tissue Engineering


Tissue Engineering has become a major disruption in the health care industry and the hope is that one day we will no longer need organ donors. Tissue engineering is a form of regenerative medicine which combines “scaffolds, cells, and biologically active molecules into functional tissues.” The use of tissue engineering in everyday medical practices will ultimately lead to people living longer and healthier lives. This huge advancement will move the healthcare industry away from the need for lab animals, and with the help of 3D printing they will be able to recreate living organs in a petri-dish. Tissue engineering is transforming the way doctors look at the future, with this new disruptive technology anything is possible.  This video explains what tissue engineering is, how it works, a little bit of the history, and lastly how it has become a disruptive technology!

For more information on tissue engineering, below are links of articles I shared in the video!
