New breast implant idea is full of promise

Abstract:
Summa Health System, the Cleveland Clinic, Tulane University, the Michigan Nanotechnology Institute for Medicine and Biological Sciences, and Nano Copoeia Inc. of St. Paul, Minn., are supporting the grant request, Puskas said.

If the grant is funded, Summa's role would be to test the biorubber to determine if it's more compatible with the human body than silicone, said Stephen Schmidt, Summa's director of surgical research.
