Lecture Overview
The concept of engineering tissues that are part cell and part synthetic material was proposed nearly 20 years ago. Bhatia explains why one would choose to use an engineered tissue and the challenges of engineering a tissue that reproduces the micro-architecture of tissue in vivo. She goes on to describe how the ingredients and the methods of fabrication of a hybrid tissue are chosen. More >>
