Human Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Engineered Tissues: Clinical Considerations

Cell Stem Cell. 2018 Mar 1;22(3):294-297. doi: 10.1016/j.stem.2018.01.015.


The combined power of human pluripotent stem cells and tissue engineering promises to revolutionize medicine by building tissue patches and artificial replacement organs for patients battling diverse diseases. Here, we articulate some big questions that need to be addressed before such engineered tissues become mainstream in the clinic.
