Multiple Paths of Convergence in Tissue Engineering

Executive Summary

A collaboration within Carnegie Mellon is using ink-jet printing technology to create spatial patterns of growth factors, and in turn using them to influence the development of stem cells in vitro. The technology could provide a better means of harnessing the power of growth factor biology in regenerative medicine. The team is also using it to begin to develop rudimentary artificial bone-tendon-muscle constructs for eventual clinical use.
