Tissue science, is a versatile field which aims at the research and development of biological surrogate that restore, maintain or improve the function of tissues in the body. Tissue science emerged from the field of biomaterials development and introduces the practice of merging scaffolds, cells and biologically active molecules into functional tissues. The ultimate aim of tissue science is to bring together the functional constructs that restore,maintain or improve damaged tissues or organs. Hence the tissue science connects the researchers, scientists, biomedical engineers, physicians and surgeons to progress new techniques to tissue repair and replacement.

Scaffolds is a structure of artificial or natural materials on which tissue is grown to mimic a biological process outside the body or to replace a disease or damaged tissue inside the body. Scaffolds are one of the three most important essentials constituting the basic concepts of regenerative medicine. Day-to-day thousands of surgical procedures are done to replace or repair tissue that has been damaged through disease or trauma. The evolving field of tissue engineering aims to regenerate the damaged tissues by combining cells from the body with highly porous scaffold biomaterials. Scaffolds acts a template for tissue regeneration, to guide the growth of new tissue.

Wound healing is the major health care issue. The non-healing wounds occur once the amount of oxygen in and across the wound drops below a specific stage and your body's natural cure system and ability to battle infection emerge as typically impaired. Especially in the diabetic patients the wounds cannot be cured easily. To overcome this tissue engineering plays a major role in the development of tissue-engineered skin substitutes to promote the healing of the cutaneous wounds. Tissue-engineered skin substitutes by  tissue engineering research has depend upon the production of three-dimensional scaffolds as extracellular matrix (ECM). Recent researches have been done on a variety of scaffolds, which have been fabricated based on materials ranging from naturally occurring ones to those manufactured synthetically.

Regeneration is the process of  re-growth of lost tissues or organs in response to injury. In Regeneration, specialized tissues are replaced by the proliferation of nearby undamaged specialized cells.To save the damaged tissues and improve functional organ mass, huge efforts have been made in the developing field of regenerative medicine. This efforts engages the scientific research in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms through which the regenerative potential of stem cells may be unfolded into a clinical application.

As every research should have a ethical base, tissue engineering too stands on some code of ethics. As it involves the use of body parts of living species, there are some ethical regulations that bind the researchers to think before making a leap.. Likewise there are some legal restriction on the research and application of tissue engineering. These ethical, legal and social indications of tissue science must be distinguished as they will form the base for the consequent success of this engineering.
