Co-cultures and cell sheet engineering as relevant tools to improve the outcome of bone tissue engineering strategies
Subject: 611-018.4 | 576.3 | 57.086
Taking into consideration the complex biology of bone tissue it is quite clear that the
understanding of the cellular interactions that regulate the homeostasis and
regeneration of this remarkable tissue is essential for a successful Tissue Engineering
