Bone is one of the most frequently transplanted tissue in humans, second only to blood. It is estimated that over 500,000 bone grafts are needed in the United States per year. OREC's Biomaterials & Histology Laboratory investigates the use of calcium phosphates, bone void fillers, and other synthetic bone graft substitutes to avoid many of the problems associated with natural bone grafts.
