This video from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) looks at how bioengineers are developing new treatments for torn ligaments. Tissue engineering involves taking the patient's own cells and growing them on a synthetic scaffold before reintroducing them into the patient. This avoids tissue rejection and immune responses.

This film highlights research and careers in the field of bioengineering, and supports a fulll series of resources which explore modern materials and their use in clinical settings. These resources can be found in the Nature Reinvented sub-collection.

Curriculum links include: materials, cells, tissues, bioengineering, biomechanics, stem cells, immune system.
