For Patients Who Require Bone Grafts, a 3-D Printer Could Provide Relief

Scientists have successfully 3-D-printed splints for babies’ airways, faux brains to study cortical folding — and now they’ve generated synthetic bone. A team of researchers at Northwestern University has created an extremely pliable, artificial bone that helps expedite recovery and that can be easily manipulated by surgeons in the operating room. “This could also be adapted… Read More »
