More Tissue Engineering Timelines

The conventional wisdom on the future of tissue engineering is echoed in the People's Daily Online: "Part of human tissues such as bone, muscle, blood vessel, or even nerve can be 'batch-produced' in another 10 or 15 years said Doctor Cui Zhanfeng ... Cui said that despite of some explorations there would be many [technically] difficult problems before realizing batch production of human tissues. For example the sources of stem cells, the material for support, bioreactor, how to enlarge tissues in industrialized production as well as any rejections caused by implanting. They are involved in many areas of engineering, medical science and materials."
