Today’s Solutions: February 03, 2023

Scientists have found an innovative treatment technique using carbon nanomaterials that may forever change the way we fix broken bones. A team of researchers at the Carnegie Mellon University tested a new formula of graphene that is biodegradable, mimics bone, attracts stem cells, and ultimately improves how animals can repair damage to their skeletons. The material serves as a scaffold, allowing the body’s own cells to more rapidly reform the missing or damaged bone. The technique has already shown successful results in mice, and as the technology evolves, it could become a vital part of orthopedic medicine, helping us recover faster with stronger, healthier bones.
