Additional information

Tissue engineering studies and develops new and more effective methods for treating tissue and organ failures of patients. The development of this kind of new human spare parts for different tissues and whole organs requires cross-disciplinary integration of knowledge on biomaterials, cell and tissue biology, and medicine. This minor provides basic knowledge on cell biology and tissue engineering technologies and regulations needed in tissue engineering.
