Tissue engineering is a rapidly growing field, attracting a huge concentration of research effort. An important subfield of tissue engineering focuses on the use of bioreactors, devices that attempt to simulate a physiological environment in order to promote the growth of functional cell or tissue in vivo. In this talk we present a mathematical model to simulate both nutrient transport and cell proliferation within a spatially-varying permeability scaffold inside a perfusion bioreactor, and compare results from this model with experimental results from the literature.
