Geometric induction of bone formation
Chidarikire, Thato Nelly
An exciting and novel concept of tissue engineering and morphogenesis is the generation of bone by the implantation of smart biomaterials that in their own right can induce a desired and specific morphogenetic response from the host tissues without the addition of exogenously applied bone morphogenetic and osteogenic proteins.
