Abstract

The Symposium on Metrology and Standards for Cell Signaling: Impact on Tissue Engineering, was held at the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) on October 14-15, 2003. The purpose of the symposium, which was co-sponsored by NIST and ASTM International, was to discuss the role of quantitative measurements and standards for the field of tissue engineering. Speakers included government researchers from NIST, FDA and NCI, vice presidents and CEOs from companies, and academic researchers in engineering, medicine and cell biology. The metrology needs identified include quantitative assays of cell signaling pathways, bioinformatics that will allow consolidation of these complex data and permit correlative parameters to be identified, and well-characterized standardized cell lines against which responses in other cells can be compared.
