Cell and Tissue Engineering

This area seeks to understand and attack biomedical problems at the microscopic level and use such knowledge to engineer replacement tissues and organs from individual cells. Knowledge of anatomy, biochemistry and the mechanics of cellular and sub-cellular structures is needed to understand disease processes and to target interventions. Armed with such knowledge, new technologies have been, or are being developed such as:

  • Biomaterials
  • Cellular Engineering
  • Hemodynamics
  • Mass transport
