The field of tissue engineering has emerged from the related areas of cellular/molecular biology and engineering as a unique discipline focused on the development and implementation of functional biological replacements for tissues and organs (Langer and Vacanti 1993). The successful creation of tissues that can effectively serve as physiological replacements or accurate biological models of development and pathology requires the appropriate combination of numerous variables including cellular populations, an underlying matrix, and soluble signals. Due to the complexity and dynamic nature of biological systems, establishing a firm understanding of the intracellular and intercellular processes in target tissues is paramount for successful advances in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (Georgakoudi et al. 2008).
