Tissue Regeneration is a branch of translational medicine research. In tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. This field holds the promise of engineering damaged tissues and organs by stimulating the body's own repair mechanisms to functionally heal previously irreparable tissues or organs. Regenerative medicine includes the possibility of growing tissues and organs in the laboratory and implanting them when the body cannot heal itself. Tissue Regeneration scientists have found a way of mimicking our body's natural healing process, using cell derived nano-sized particles called vesicles, to repair damaged tissue. This session further debates more about tissue regeneration.
Scaffolds and Matrix for Tissue Regeneration is majority of the cells, except red blood cells, in our body are anchored to remain attached to a rigid support called extracellular matrix called ECM. It plays a key role in providing structural support to the cells and adds to the mechanical properties of tissues. Due to highly dynamic properties of ECM, it cannot be mimicked. Scientists have developed biomaterials and biopolymers that can act as ECM and serve the similar functions in engineered tissues. There are four scaffolding approaches like pre-made porous scaffolds for cell seeding; decellularized extracellular matrix for cell seeding; confluent cells with secreted extracellular matrix; confluent cells with secreted extracellular matrix. This session discusses more about scaffolds and matrix for tissue regeneration.
Stem Cells are undifferentiated cells that have the potency to regenerate and differentiate into cells of specific lineage. They are classified as oligopotent, pluripotent, totipotent cells based on the different types of cells formed after differentiation. Human embryonic stem cells can be differentiated into cells with many characteristics of primary human hepatocytes. Hepatocyte-like cells can be enriched and recovered based on asialoglycoprotein receptor expression and could potentially be used in drug discovery research and developed as therapeutics. The broader classification includes embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells. MSC transplantation for tissue engineering has grabbed attention due to its immunosuppressive features. This session discusses more about stem cells its culture, differentiation and transplantation.
Grafts in Tissue Engineering are the parts of tissue that have been transplanted via surgical methods. Wound, burns and scars are healed through grafts in tissue engineering. Different kinds of grafting are bone grafting, skin grafting, ligament repair, vascular grafting. In recent years cardiovascular disease are being combated with the development of a tissue-engineered vascular graft (TEVG). The various approaches to generate TEVGs are scaffold-based methods and tissue self-assembly processes. The channels for vascular grafting are autologous arteries or veins. The challenge of tissue engineering blood vessels with the mechanical properties of native vessels, and with the anti-thrombotic properties required is immense. This session discusses more about grafts in tissue engineering.
Advent of microfuidics has brought remarkable change in the field of tissue engineering. Microfluidics is the science and technology of systems that process or manipulate small amounts of fluids; say 10–9 to 10–18 liters using channels with dimensions of tens to hundreds of micrometers. The first applications of microfluidic technologies have been in analysis for which they offer a number of useful capabilities such as the ability to use very small quantities of samples and reagents; and to carry out separations and detections with high resolution and sensitivity; low cost; short times for analysis; and small footprints for the analytical devices. This session further discusses the technological developments in microfluidics.
Regenerative medicine is indeed a renaissance in the field of tissue engineering. Regenerative medicine helps bodies mend themselves, providing cures for people who have been living until now without treatment options. It's a whole new realm of healing. By getting down to the basics of how cells differentiate and muster to form tissues and organs the researchers have turned the corner on understanding the way regeneration works. Engineers have come up with techniques for assembling cells into large, three-dimensional structures, and for building automated bioreactors called culture vessels for mass production of cells and engineered tissues. Today, a patient's own cells can be harvested, tweaked, and used to help re-grow their missing or damaged tissues, and even to make lab-grown organs for transplant. This session discusses more about regenerative medicine.
Medical Implants and Prosthetics are devices or tissues that are placed inside or on the surface of the body to replace the missing body parts. Other implants deliver medication, monitor body functions, or provide support to organs and tissues. Some implants are made from skin, bone or other body tissues. Others are made from metal, plastic, ceramic or other materials. Some implants are permanent and some can be removed once they are no longer needed. Stents or hip implants are permanent. While chemotherapy ports or screws to repair broken bones can be removed when they no longer needed. There are also risks involved in medical implants such as surgical risks, infection, implant failure and etc.
Drug delivery in Tissue Engineering has received attention in recent years because in most cases the drugs do not reach the target organs and fail to deliver the therapeutic action. Tissue engineering depends on the use of scaffolds. Growth factors for tissue regeneration are all the more important. To complement these growth factors various drug delivery systems play a key role. As such drug delivery system complementing tissue engineering needs the attention of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. This review focuses on synthetic polymers that have been used for tissue growth scaffold fabrication and their applications in both cell and extracellular matrix support and controlling the release of cell growth and differentiation supporting drugs. This session discusses more about drug delivery in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
Gene therapy in relation to Tissue Science uses the application of gene transfer to tissue engineering. The transfer of genetic information to modify a phenotype for therapeutic purposes is important. The application of gene transfer to tissue engineering has a myriad of possibilities, including the transient or permanent genetic modification of the engineered tissue to produce proteins for internal, local or systemic use, helping to protect the engineered tissue and providing stimuli for the engineered tissue to grow and or differentiate. This session further discusses the gene therapy in relation to tissue science the strategies, the details, the gene transfer vectors used to achieve these goals and challenges are discussed.
Aesthetic Skin Rejuvenation corrects the skin problems clinically.Photo damage, abnormal pigmentation or vascularity, textural problems, rhytides, and laxity due to chronological aging are some of the problems addressed by skin rejuvenation. Specialists with multiple technology options then face a new dilemma. The last few years have seen aesthetic skin rejuvenation emphasizing the corrective process and utilization of the most appropriate technology. Individualized treatment plan consists of a series of skin correction treatments utilizing the most specific rejuvenation techniques for each clinical problem. This session discusses more advanced techniques involved in aesthetic skin rejuvenation
Bio-Imaging or Biological imaging refer to the imaging techniques used in biology. It is a term that covers the complex chain of acquiring, processing and visualizing structural or functional images of living objects or systems, including extraction and processing of image-related information. Image modalities used in bio-imaging are many which include X-ray, CT, MRI and fMRI, PET and HRRT PET, SPECT, MEG, etc. Medical imaging and microscope/fluorescence image processing are important parts of bio-imaging referring to the techniques and processes used to create images of the human body, anatomical areas, tissues, etc. This session further discusses more about bio-imaging and the advancements it made in the field.
A Biosensor is an analytical device, which the sensors integrate the biological elements with Physiochemical transducer to produce an electronic signal is proportional to a single analyte and which is fetched into a detector. Biosensors are used to detect the analyte gathering biological components with a physicochemical detector. The sensing biological elements are biometric components that analyze the components like tissue, microorganisms, antibodies, nucleic acids etc. The sensitive elements of biological can also generate by the biological engineering. The detector elements transform the signals from the interface of analyte with the biochemical elements into other signals like transducer and it can be measured more easily and qualified. This session discusses more about biosensors article discusses about different types of Biosensors working and applications.
Bio-Printing refers to the utilization of 3D printing and 3D printing–like techniques to combine cells, growth factors, and biomaterials to fabricate biomedical parts that maximally imitate natural tissue characteristics. Today bioprinting is being used to print tissues and organs to help research drugs and pills. However, emerging innovations span from bioprinting of cells or extracellular matrix deposited into a 3D three-dimensional gel layer by layer to produce the desired tissue or organ. The recent explosion in popularity of 3D printing is a testament to the promise of this technology and its profound utility in research and regenerative medicine. In addition, 3D bioprinting has begun to incorporate the printing of scaffolds, which are used to regenerate joints and ligaments. This session discusses more about bioprinting and how it helps in regenerative medicine.
Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis are different types of arthritis. Though they share some similar characteristics each has different symptoms and requires different treatment. Therefore an accurate diagnosis is important. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis affects about one-tenth as many people as osteoarthritis. The main difference between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis is the cause behind the joint symptoms. Osteoarthritis is caused by mechanical wear and tear on joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the body's own immune system attacks the body's joints. This session discusses more about osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Today, cancer has become of the biggest problems affecting human beings across the world. Tissue engineering is being applied in the treatment of cancer. Tissue engineering makes new tissues out of tumors to be very well vascularized so they can grow. One of the ways in which tissue engineering and cancer can interact is through using tissue engineering to understand cancer at the biological level and trying to understand how things like tumors are formed; and how we can use three-dimensional constructs to understand cancer cell and normal cell interactions; and how cancer cells go into the bloodstream and metastasize to other tissues. Tissue Engineering also takes up three-dimensional constructs, in which cancer cells are cultured. This session discusses how technologies that have been applied to tissue engineering can also be applied to understanding cancer.

This session debates more about application of tissue engineering to plants and flowers.
Legal and Ethical Issues in Tissue Engineering has become an important factor in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine. As every research is governed by moral codes, ethical and legal issues, tissue engineering should also be governed by the same moral, ethical and legal issues. Legal and ethical issues have become mandatory as it deals with the use of body parts of living species. The research and medical practices in tissue engineering should be governed by legal and ethical issues. A body of treaties and conventions should be developed in order to safeguard the lives of human beings including human rights and their fundamental rights across the world. This session discusses more about legal and ethical issues in tissue engineering.
Plant tissue culture is the technique of maintaining and growing plant cells, tissues or organs especially on artificial medium in suitable containers under controlled environmental conditions,Plant cells can be grown in isolation from intact plants in tissue culture systems. The cells have the characteristics of callus cells, rather than other plant cell types. These are the cells that appear on cut surfaces when a plant is wounded and which gradually cover and seal the damaged area.
