New Technologies and Strategies for Tissue Engineering



2021 IADR/AADR/CADR General Session

The 99th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 45th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from July 21-24, 2021 as a Virtual Experience.

The recordings in this library from the meeting are a selection of the science that was to be presented as part of the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, the IADR Academy and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.

This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles

Session Description 
Research in the field of tissue engineering is rapidly being absorbed by dentistry, mainly in the development of strategies for replacing both soft and mineralized tissues in the oral cavity. Even with these advances, understanding the three pillars of tissue engineering, scaffolds, cells and extracellular molecules, is not enough anymore to overcome some translational challenges. The purpose of this symposium will be to present some of these new strategies and technologies that are bringing new layers to the basic tissue engineering concepts. The use of cell-based and primarily cell-free concepts in tissue engineering strategies will be presented, with advantages and disadvantages of each approach, focusing on the environmental needs to attract and differentiate these cells. Scaffold free approaches will also be discussed. Scaffold materials for tissue engineering will be discussed with regard to the biological and physical properties necessary to achieve tissue regeneration in clinical situations, more specifically focusing on the latest advances in material development technologies. Finally, we will present material add-ons to the tissue engineering strategies to allow for in vivo three-dimensional observation of cells.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand the role of cells and scaffolds on tissue regeneration strategies.
  • Identify new methods for developing materials suitable for engineering of specific tissues.
  • Acquire knowledge on new methods to improve cell observation and tissue engineering outcomes.
