    tissue matrices

    Would you please explain "tissue matrices" more easily? Especially what does "matrices" mean there?

    The renovation and repopulation of cadaveric organs and tissue matrices by stem cells is the basis for growing new and transplantable organs in the lab, which is an approach that tissue-engineering pioneer Anthony Atala... has demonstrated successfully.

    Thank you.

    Re: tissue matrices

    That link is to a definition of the naturally occurring susbstance. But as Atala is described as a 'tissue-engineering pioneer' I think the quoted text is referring to an artificial framework, which allows the growth of things like this
