Biomimicry- repairing skin tissue using plant cells!

When looking at biomedical engineering using the plant cells I stumbled across this article, theres evidence to believe that a plant cell can actually help grow back tissue and bones in humans. this is through a process entitled tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Biomedical engineering could open up a whole world os possibilities.

Scaffolds- scaffolds are used to treat cells in the body. It’s a material that works with the biological systems to look at everything from evaluating the problem to treating it effectivly. Scaffolds are templates when healing, they are almost like designers, they look at the problem and look at the most effective form of fixing it.

The structure of the scaffolds is really similar to the structure of the plant cells under the microscope. Theres a repetitive structure that really open and linear, its important to take this into textiles as its such a prominant structure. Relating to burn healing the wide open structure would allow the burn to heal, allowing oxygen to promote burn healing. taking this into textiles could I find a material thats really similar to this?





Adding in other materials!

    keep this going its great to keep researching and developing your concepts and ideas even towards the end of the project and fuel these back into your materials and samples as they tie in really well
