This week in the Regenerative Medicine Class, Aaron Goldstein talked about tissue engineering and regenerative medicine on Tuesday, and on Thursday we had a discussion about the first section of the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Since we’ll explore Thursday’s topic on two more occasions, this week’s question is about tissue engineering.
So, class: how would you explain the relationship between tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to someone outside the fields? Are they the same thing? Is there a different focus? Are the participants different? You are welcome to describe or post Venn Diagrams or other graphics if they help you explain things a bit better.
