Recent developments in material science have enabled bioengineered tissues to be developed with applications relevant to clinical medicine. Tissue engineering is an interdisciplinary field that applies the principles of engineering and the life sciences toward the development of biological substitutes that restore, maintain, or improve tissue function.!
In tissue engineering, there are two fundamentally different approaches that can be taken. The first is to replicate the organanatomically, with the expectation that the function of the engineered organ will therefore be the same. The second approach is simply to replicate its function. Researchers who aim to engineer intestine have adopted the anatomical approach with the key problems including the development of a muscular layer and neuronal innovation are major challenges to its success. On the other hand,if the aim is to develop an absorptive surface with neointestinal epithelium, it is possible to be more imaginative about how this can be achieved.
In this website, you would be able to become familiar with the technique and approaches of engineering small intestine using stem cell.
