Engineering Micro and Nanostructured Biomaterials for Cell and Tissue Engineering Excerpt :

Tissue engineering has emerged as a well-investigated research area that aims to ultimately create biological substitutes, ranging from skin replacement to artificial blood vessels, for regenerative medicine applications. It is a multidisciplinary field that integrates knowledge and advancements from biology, materials, chemistry, and many others. Although the goal of tissue engineering is to engineer tissues with structure and function that closely mimic those of native tissues for not only diagnostic and drug testing applications but also repair and replacement of diseased and injured tissues, it provides in-depth understanding of tissue development and morphogenesis, including the intricate biological systems in the body that together operate to direct growth, repair, and death. The general approach of tissue engineering is to use cells, biomaterials, bioactive molecules, or a combination thereof to best recapitulate the properties of native tissues and reconstitute function. Specifically, biomaterial scaffolds play a key role in that their main function is to serving as a basis to interact with and support cells, promoting their attachment and migration while providing a porous and biomimetic microenvironment for mass transport and integration of bioactive factors. Therefore, in order to fabricate implantable scaffolds with properties that emulate the natural extracellular matrix (ECM) in terms of structure and organization, we utilize and implement electrospinning technology. Electrospinning is a versatile technique with immense potential to create cell-instructive scaffolds possessing ECM-like fibrous structures. Because of the ability to tune scaffold structure with respect to physical (i.e. geometry and mechanical properties) and chemical (i.e. retention and presentation of bioactive molecules) features, electrospun scaffolds, which are made from synthetic, natural, or a combination of the two polymers, have demonstrated functional success in an array of tis
