Academic Journal
The author discusses the launch of the "Oral & Craniofacial Tissue Engineering" journal. According to the author, the time is appropriate for gathering the world's best clinicians, research scientists, and academicians and concentrate their efforts into one forum on the complex problem of oral and craniofacial tissue regeneration. The author says that the idea for the journal was conceived from the 2010 Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) Symposium.
