In recent years, the mathematical and computational sciences have developed novel methodologies and insights that can aid in designing advanced bioreactors, microfluidic setups or organ-on-chip devices, in optimizing culture conditions, or predicting long-term behavior of engineered tissues in vivo. In this review, we introduce the concept of computational models and how they can be integrated in an interdisciplinary workflow for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (TERM). We specifically aim this review of general concepts and examples at experimental scientists with little or no computational modeling experience. We also describe the contribution of computational models in understanding TERM processes and in advancing the TERM field by providing novel insights.
