GTEC Celebrates Success - Renews Commitment to Regenerative Med

Full Summary:

January 13, 2009. The Georgia Tech Emory Center for the Engineering of Living Tissues (GTEC), a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center, celebrated its tenth year of innovative research. When founded in 1998, GTEC's focus was on replacing tissues or growing cell-based substitutes outside the body for implantation into the body. As GTEC has evolved over the last decade, its approach has broadened from a focus on tissue engineering to one that includes tissue regeneration.
