An Introduction to Tissue Engineering Using Hydrogels
Ballyns, Jeffrey J.; Doran, Robert F.; Archer, Shivaun D.; Bonassar, Lawrence J.
Science Scope, v35 n1 p50-56 Sep 2011
Biotechnology has often been a favorite topic in popular culture. While this has provided students with some introduction to the futuristic potential of biotechnology and biomedical sciences, it does not often translate to activities that will excite and stimulate them academically. In this article, the authors present a three-part classroom activity that introduces students to examples of research in the field of tissue engineering and allows them to replicate experiments being done in university laboratories using alginate hydrogels. (Contains 4 figures.)
