Aims/Description: The replacement of missing or diseased tissues and the restoration of normal tissue function is arguably the greatest challenge encountered by surgeons today. This module introduces students to the rapidly developing field of tissue engineering and regenerative dentistry as applied in clinical situations and in commercial and laboratory research. Students on this module will learn about the broad field of tissue engineering but particular emphasis will be placed on regenerative dentistry for dental and craniofacial repair.
