Regenerative tissue engineering has long been encumbered by the metabolic needs of clinically relevant sized tissues. Strategies to overcome these needs include lowering cell density, increasing oxygen production, constructing perfusion networks and prevascularizing tissue. Biomaterials involved in the first three strategies have been shown to interfere with essential cell interactions that provide mechanisms for healing, host tissue integration, and overall construct integrity. My research focuses on engineering a prevascularized bone tissue construct. This project has the promising potential to provide a platform for prevascularized tissue engineering.
