Tissue engineering (or regenerative medicine) is defined as the application of scientific principles to the synthesis of living tissues using bioreactors, cells, scaffolds, growth factors, or a combination (Rose and Oreffo, 2002). One of the principal methods in tissue engineering involves the use of a porous scaffold to support and guide synthesis of a 3D tissue or organ (Sachlos and Czernuszka, 2003). Collagen-Glycosaminoglycan scaffolds have found success in several clinical applications of tissue engineering (Yannas et al., 1989, Chamberlain et al., 1998).
