Tissue Engineering

Biomedical engineering (also referred to as Bioengineering or BME) is a field of engineering that aims to improve human health and healthcare by applying the principles and problem-solving techniques of engineering to biology and medicine. Biomedical engineering is highly interdisciplinary, and thus covers many specializations. Common sub-fields that fall under the BME umbrella include:

We here at TERC focus on conducting research in Tissue engineering! Tissue engineering aims to develop artificial tissues to understand, restore, and replace damaged tissues and organs.  Currently, ongoing research is being conducted to engineer tissues for nearly every organ, including the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, brain, and skin. Over the years, engineers have been able to create functional tissues with some pretty astounding results. From beating heart muscles to blinking eye tissues, our ability to recreate parts of the human body  is continuously improving. 

The classical approach of tissue engineering uses a combination of cells, biomaterials, and biologically active molecules to assemble a tissue that can replicate the function of those in your body.

Over the years, the tissues we make are becoming increasingly sophisticated, but there is still a long way to go before we are able to grow entire organs. That said, this field is advancing so rapidly, and we can’t wait to see what research brings us in the future.
