Pigs regularly play an important role in vital medical research through the use of porcine organs and tissues.
One such area is the field known as TERM, or tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Tissue regeneration can change the lives of humans and animals alike, making progress in this field of research even more critical.

It is both interesting and refreshing to look at the field of regenerative medicine from the perspective of biomechanical engineering research, rather than the standard cellular and biological aspects.
Regenerative medicine is a very exciting field of study, and the porcine lends itself very well to this type of research. That’s because – as we have pointed out before – of the biological similarities between pigs and humans.
