MOOC Tissue/Organ Bioengineering

Tissue and organ bioengineering is a new fascinating multidisciplinary work gathering biologists,
engineers, physicists, chemists and mathematicians with tremendous impact for medicine and
drug development. Innovative scaffolds directing cell behavior facilitate the generation of
organoids and tissues more and more complex, leading the way to fully equipped organs for
transplantation. Besides, advances in microfluidics and other biofabrication technologies have
boosted the construction of organ-on-chips with wide applications in predictive toxicology, drug
metabolism and micro physiology, but also external bio artificial organs.
