The Essentials of Tissue Engineering
Background image of page 2
Importance and Impact z The focus of tissue engineering is to create three dimensional tissue cultures. These cultures can be used to create functional tissue grafts for transplants, derive proteins from tissues, and further studies in the development of tissues and the diseases that affect them. Basically, this is very important and the impact of improving tissue engineering can affect a wide variety of areas.
