Building Better Bones

Abstract:
Someday, Antoni Tomsia's research could help people live full lives as their bones weaken. The Berkeley Lab scientist recently received a $4.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop bone-like materials that could greatly improve implants such as artificial hips and shoulders. Tomsia's goal is to harness the latest advances in nanotechnology to fabricate implants that repair themselves, adapt to changing physiological conditions, and mesh with surrounding tissue -- in other words, behave like real bone.
