NSF Funds Project Aimed at Nanofiber-Based Bone Regeneration

Description Biomimetics researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology have developed a nanoscale approach for reconstructing intricate bone tissue with the potential to form hierarchical cortical bone. A team led by Dr. Hongjun Wang, a professor in SIT’s Department of Chemistry, Chemical Biology and Biomedical Engineering, is engineering cortical bone by synthesizing smaller units and fusing them together. The approach uses nanofibers to build “scaffolds” that produce a biomimetic cell-friendly microenvironment to facilitate the bone tissue formation. Project is funded by National Science Foundation (NSF).
