Tissue engineering is a rapidly growing field of research that aims to repair damaged tissues within the body. Among tissue engineering approaches is the use of scaffolds to help regenerate lost tissues. Scaffolds provide structural support for specific areas within the body, namely load bearing regions, and allow for cells to be seeded within the scaffold for tissue regeneration. Scaffolds that specifically replicate the properties and/or composition of native tissues are referred to as biomimetic scaffolds.
