Aliasger Salem and his research team have developed a bio patch to help generate and grow damaged bone by delivering DNA blueprints to surrounding cells. In experiments, the bio patch regrew 44 times more bone tissue than similar implants with no genetic information. It has also stimulated growth in human bone marrow stromal cells. Next, Salem hopes to create a bio platform that promotes new blood vessel growth. Related video.
