An overview of education for careers in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine is presented. The fundamental process common to all tissue engineering approaches is manipulation of cells to create new functional tissue. The design principles for tissue engineering lie in the models for quantitative manipulation of cell function, primarily through receptor-mediated phenomena. Tissue-engineered physiological models in drug discovery and drug development, and this application area can potentially provide a rich discussion of competing approaches to very challenging problems.
