New glass research center to support statewide medical research

Recent research by Prof. Del Day, Prof. Len Rahaman and Prof. Dick Brow has targeted the development of bioactive glasses and bioceramics to repair bone, heal soft tissue wounds and eradicate infection. A challenge has been to develop bioactive glass scaffolds with the requisite mechanical reliability and microstructure to heal large defects in structural bone. Link.
