Cell therapies and regenerative medicine have the potential to produce effective, long-lasting treatments and cures for a range of diseases. Recently there have been major advances in designing, controlling, and tailoring relevant cells and organoids for such cures. This progress has brought the concept of therapeutic cell factories closer to becoming real devices which can act as artificial organs and allow patients to lead a symptom-free life.
As our understanding of the cellular aspects of such treatments becomes more comprehensive, the focus for research and innovation is shifting towards the development of appropriate biomaterials to house the cells so devices can facilitate the efficacy of the therapy.
