Translational studies of engineered human tissues Abstract

Main Article Content

Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic


This talk will discuss the applications of tissue engineering in two areas of medicine: regenerative engineering of whole organs at the clinical scale [1,2], and modelling of diseases and therapeutic modalities using micro-sized “organs on chip” platforms [3,4,5].
