Abstract Text

The ultimate goal of tissue engineering is to replace, repair, or enhance the biological function of
damaged, absent, or dysfunctional elements of a tissue or an organ. This goal may be accomplished
using different strategies that may use scaffolds, cells, and growth factors, alone or in combination,
to develop engineered tissues that can function as living biological substitutes for malfunctioning
or lost tissues. Many different strategies can be used to develop these engineered tissues.
