Still in its infancy, tissue engineering has already made it possible to grow human-based substitutes for basic bodily systems. In this program, experts from MIT, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Advanced Tissue Sciences, a commercial leader in tissue engineering technology, focus on synthesized skin and arteries, as well as cellular growth-inducing patches. Applications of these products for burn victims and people with diabetes are demonstrated. In addition, industry challenges including government regulation, mass production, and the forming of strategic alliances for research and distribution are addressed.
