Perspective on the future of tissue engineering and utilizing biomaterial scaffolding to grow cells on/within.
This article brought to my attention the dimension of time in examining boundaries. An increasing number of technologies that will be implemented involve integration into the body at different points in time. This is reminiscent of a multiple births; the cells involved in tissue engineering having an almost fetus/placenta-like dependence on the biomaterial scaffolding for growth.
