The clinical grand challenge to regenerate complex tissue and organ systems call for a paradigm shift that requires a transdisciplinary approach. The field of regenerative engineering puts forward a Convergence approach to create a regenerative toolbox to move beyond individual tissue repair to the regeneration of complex tissues and organ systems. Here we discuss the regenerative tool box currently under development to address grand opportunities in complex tissue/organ regeneration.
