The rationale for understanding cell anatomy and physiology is due to the fact that disease can arise from cell dysfunction, and any synthetic intervention leads to cells that ultimately encounter these synthetic, hybrid, and transplanted materials. It is important to create relevant classifications of specialized cell types and to distinguish between functional physiology and pathology or disease. Ultimately bioengineered solutions using materials require some haptic interface with biological tissue and by colocation, cells as ...
