Tissue engineering: an introduction
Video from The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bio-engineering, one of 27 Institutes and Centers that comprise the National Institutes of Health (NIH) explaining what tissue engineering is. (2 mins)
The promise of tissue engineering
The potential for tissue engineering to transform future healthcare is exciting. With tissue engineering, future medical treatments could involve solutions that regenerate themselves rather than implanted medical devices. Watch these videos to learn more about the possibilities.
