The Cellular and Molecular mechanics is the backbone of tissue repair and current therapies including tissue engineering is limited. Tissue engineering often involves cells and scaffolds to replace damaged tissue. It originated, in part, as a means of affecting the delivery of biomolecules. There should be controlled release of biomolecules for activating cell delivery. Biomolecules can enable modulate inflammatory response, cell engraftment, and the behavior of the delivered cells.

Biodegradable Biomaterials are those which are intended to get degraded in the body safely. These materials are either magnesium based or iron based alloys. They are mainly applied for cardiovascular implants as stents and orthopaedics. Hydrogels are the polymeric materials containing water, which are the first biomaterials for human use. Nanofiber scaffolds are used for orthopaedic tissue repair and regeneration. Biomimetic materials are those which can show cellular responses mediated by scaffold and peptide interactions from extracellular matrix.

Tissue engineering is an emerging field which involves biology, medicine, and engineering that is likely to revolutionize the ways we improve the health and quality of life for millions of people worldwide by restoring, maintaining, or enhancing tissue and organ function. Tissue engineering is the development of artificial tissue and organ systems. The term regenerative medicine is often used synonymously with tissue engineering, although those involved in regenerative medicine place more emphasis on the use of stem cells to produce tissues.
