Improving implants

A West Lafayette startup has found a tiny way to make a big impact in the orthopedic industry -- and is branching out into the state's latest life-sciences frontier.

Nanovis, founded in 2006, has developed a better way to integrate manmade implants with the human body, regrow bones and deliver antibiotics to infection-prone implant sites.
Based at Purdue University's Research Park -- and with a satellite office in Columbia City, near Fort Wayne -- Nanovis expects to add research and sales staff soon and have its first product on the market by next year.
