Abstract:

This report is a comparative review of tissue engineering research and development activities in the United States, Japan, and Western Europe conducted by a panel of leading U.S. experts in the field. It covers biomaterials, cells, biomolecules, non-medical applications, engineering design, informatics, and legal and regulatory issues associated with tissue engineering research and applications. The panels conclusions are based on a literature review, a U.S. review workshop held at NIH in June of 2000, and a series of site visits to leading tissue engineering research centers in Japan and Western Europe. A summary of the June 2000 workshop is included as an appendix, as are site reports from each of the panels overseas visits. An executive summary is included conveying the panels overall conclusions.
