Grants and Contracts Details


Growth plate fractures account for nearly 18.5% of fractures in children, and traumatic destruction of growth plate leads to angular deformity and limb length inequalities. We are proposing to synthesize biomimetic hybrid hydrogel scaffolds for tissue engineering of the physis (Hy2STEP) mised with cells as a novel method to repair growth plate injuries.
