Regenerative medicine is a multidisciplinary field where continued
progress relies on the incorporation of a diverse set of technologies from a wide
range of disciplines within medicine, science and engineering. This review describes
how one such technique, mathematical modelling, can be utilised to improve
the tissue engineering of organs and stem cell therapy. Several case studies, taken
from research carried out by our group, ACTREM, demonstrate the utility of
mechanistic mathematical models to help aid the design and optimisation of protocols
in regenerative medicine.
