Lab-grown bone could change the way we test new medical treatments

Informed 2 weeks ago

A new technology that could be used to test new treatments for human organs and bone tissue—all whilst reducing the need for animal research—has been developed by engineers at the University of Sheffield.

The study, led by researchers from the University's Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine, along with collaborators from Universitat Ramon Llull, Spain, developed a bone-on-a-chip device containing mini scaffolding that can be used to grow human bone tissue in the laboratory.
