Tissue Regeneration

About us

Donor transplantation has been the definitive treatment for severe diseases, but is limited by a lack of donors and the need for immunosuppressant drug application after transplantation. Global interest has turned to regenerative medicine and tissue engineering to present new solutions to these problems. Tissue engineering was proposed in 1993 by Robert Langer, an American engineer, and Joseph Vacanti, an American surgeon, who proved that the regeneration of the three‐dimensional tissue structure is feasible by adding cells to a biodegradable polymer in the presence of growth factors. The further parallel development of tissue engineering and cell biology is expected to progress.
Regenerative medicine is interdisciplinary, achieving more than medical science or engineering alone. This research field integrates medicine, science and engineering to provide innovative, new concepts and approaches for the future development of medicine.
