Abstract

The field of tissue engineering is multidisciplinary, seeking to fabricate artificial organs or substitutes in order to replace failing or damaged organs. These engineered tissues and organs are mostly targeted as substitutes for human donor tissues and as such are developed to avoid the complications associated with donor matching and immune rejection [1]. Examples include substitutes of organs including liver, heart, kidney, skin, teeth, and cornea [2].
