Topic title: Utilizing cellular mobility to connect engineered and natural organs


In the multifaceted field of organ fabrication, which lies at the confluence of developmental biology, bioinspired engineering, and regenerative medicine, the overarching goal is to intricately replicate the complex morphological and functional characteristics of natural organs. Traditional approaches, such as advanced 3D bioprinting, have made significant strides but often fall short in accurately emulating the dynamic, self-organizing processes fundamental to organogenesis, particularly the nuanced patterns of cellular motility and spatial organization. This discrepancy underscores a pivotal challenge in tissue engineering: achieving a level of biomimetic fidelity that bridges the gap between synthetic constructs and their biological counterparts. Our research endeavors to integrate the principles of developmental biology with cutting-edge organ fabrication techniques. By focusing on the synergistic application of cellular motility and self-assembly mechanisms, we aim to enhance both the structural intricacy and functional authenticity of engineered tissues. This approach not only promises to advance the field towards more realistic, clinically applicable synthetic organ solutions but also offers profound insights into the underlying mechanisms of tissue development and regeneration.
