Jawbone Grown From Stem Cells at Columbia


A stem cell research team at Columbia University have successfully grown a jawbone using human stem cells. This development could totally alter bone implants and eliminate the very painful process of bone grafts. The team at Columbia was headed by Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, and her researchers replicated a 3-D scaffolding of bones using digital images of [...]
