Bone regenerative engineering: a convergence approach
NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series The treatment of injuries to bone that necessitate bone regeneration continues to be a major challenge for the orthopaedic surgeon. This burden is compounded by the constraints of supply and morbidity associated with autograft tissue, the gold standard of repair. The use of allografts, xenografts, or metal and ceramic implants overcomes many of the limitations associated with autografts but fails to provide a viable solution. Dr. Cato T. Laurencin has worked in the area of bone engineering with a focus on biomaterial selection, scaffold development, cell selection, c...
