Abstract

Using various sources of stem cells together with different types of scaffolds provides a new route to investigate developmental process of male gametes, which until now was difficult to investigate in the human. In the future tissue engineering may be used for new regenerative medicine application in male infertility. This brief review outlines the progressive insights of this novel biomedical technology and its capabilities, how tissue engineering can mimic developmental processes In vitro and generate a three-dimensional niche for spermatogenesis for research and potential therapies.
