"A synthetic biomaterial that encourages the body to create bone could be the answer to successful bone grafts and treating bone disease, Australian researchers say.

Dr Cameron Lutton of the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) says the biomaterial activates the initial stages of bone healing."
(direct quote from page)

It's good to see medical research moving forward in this field,as the current grafting methods can be a horrendous ordeal for patients that have suffered
loss of bone though one mishap or another.

Great to see research dollars being put to good use!
