Abstract

Although it is now known as a common term for almost two decades, ‘Tissue Engineering’ (TE) still can be considered to be a comparatively young field of basic and applied multidisciplinary biomedical research. It utilizes the principles and methods of engineering and life sciences combined with clinical expertise toward the development of biological tissue substitutes to restore, maintain or improve the function of diseased or damaged human tissues is currently leaving its eggshells behind. Without doubt the collaboration of scientists from many various disciplines has led to the development of a multitude of brilliant inventions, latest research tools and scientific techniques which are now constantly incorporated in this yet growing scientific field.
