Tissue engineering is the use of a combination of cells, engineering and materials methods, and suitable biochemical and physio-chemical factors to improve or replace biological functions. While most definitions of tissue engineering cover a broad range of applications, in practice the term is closely associated with applications that repair or replace portions of or whole tissues (i.e., bone, cartilage, blood vessels, bladder, etc...). Often, the tissues involved require certain mechanical and structural properties for proper function. The term has also been applied to efforts to perform specific biochemical functions using cells within an artificially-created support system

 

Tissue Engineering thus aims to provide an alternative better means of treatment for tissue and organ damage through combining both biological and artificial components in such a way that a long-lasting repair is produced. This rapidly-emerging field is strongly interdisciplinary as it combines engineering techniques, materials science and biochemical expertise.

 

University of madras under department of zoology offers PG diploma in stem cell technology and tissue engineering.
