NSF awards Selective Laser Sintering of Bioglass Scaffolds for Bone Tissue Engineering

Mo-Sci Corporation proposes to develop novel bone tissue scaffolds that mimic the structure and mechanical properties of hard callus woven bone and that are synergistic with the natural bone tissue regeneration process. Bioactive glass will be used as powder feedstock to a rapid prototyping selective laser sintering (SLS) machine to fabricate the proposed resorbable bone tissue scaffolds.
