R/D on Improving Fracture Recovery via Nanofibrous Scaffolds
After having explored the depths of improving wound healing via cell and tissue engineering methods (more below), I transitioned to a another methodology in which similar nanotechnological principles could be applied to help speed up bone fracture recovery.
Taking inspiration from my own life as I fractured my femur in a bike accident, the goal of my self-conducted research and development is based around using an implantable scaffold to surround the fractured bone during surgery that will improve osteoblast and osteoclast growth and eventually the scaffold will naturally degrade in the body.
