The emphasis of this talk is placed on how photocrosslinkable materials (materials which are initially liquid and solidified upon light exposure), can be used to achieve regeneration of diseased or damaged tissues, for example, to be fabricated into various scaffolds (electrospun fibers, microspheres) to reconstruct hard tissues such as bone as well as soft tissues such as skin.
