Recent research from OREC's Biomaterials & Histology Laboratory has been selected for presentation at the Orthopaedic Research Society's 2022 Annual Meeting held this year in Tampa, Florida. The selected work includes contributions by BIMA students and collaborators investigating newly formulated calcium phosphate and collagen composites and, separately, inflammatory host response to implanted guidance systems for early onset scoliosis. Full details below.
Podium presentation of the this research will take place on Monday, February 7, 2022, in a session titled Biomaterials—Bone Repair and Regeneration. The work will be presented by Tim Guthrie, an MCW Medical Student interested in radiographic and histologic evaluations of bone grafts and bone graft substitutes. Tyler Fairwood, a co-author of the submitted work, is a recent graduate of the Marquette-Medical College of Wisconsin Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, where he focused on Biomaterials and Medical Devices. His current research is interested in evaluation of bone graft substitutes in clinical models.
