Advances in tissue regeneration and regenerative medicine
Not all tissues in the body are devised to regenerate after damage. Tissue regeneration emphasizes on the science of regenerating functional body parts for medical treatments aimed at restoring normal body functions after disease, trauma and congenital issues. It gives rise to a translational field of regenerative medicine, came into existence two decades ago, and, harnesses the principles of molecular biology and tissue engineering. Use of stem cells is an integral part of regenerative medicine which emphasizes on the possibility of culturing tissues and organs in-vitro and their implantation into the subject.
