Tissue-engineering the intestine: The trials before the trials

Abstract

Building complex tissues requires the development of innovative interdisciplinary engineering solutions. In this Forum, the INTENS Consortium discuss experimental considerations and challenges for generating a tissue-engineered intestine for the treatment of short bowel syndrome, taking into account cell source, scaffold choice, and design strategy for achieving proper assembly and function.
