Emerging Technologies for Tissue Engineering: From Gene Editing to Personalized Medicine

Tissue Eng Part A. 2019 May;25(9-10):688-692. doi: 10.1089/ten.TEA.2019.0026.


History has shown us how tissue engineering can be advanced by embracing technological innovation. In this perspective, we highlight some of the most promising emerging technologies and discuss how they can be integrated into existing tissue engineering protocols. The proposed technologies offer the opportunity to reshape how we currently design, engineer, and characterize tissue grafts for improved in vivo regeneration.

Keywords: characterization; gene editing; personalized medicine; technologies; tissue engineering.
