Submission + - Building Artificial Bone From Mineralised Collagen

Late-Eight writes: "Researchers from the National University of Singapore, have recently developed a new way to make artificial bone from mineralised collagen.

For some time scientists have tried to make nanosized artificial bone materials using various methods, And have recently turned their attention to mineralised collagen, a nanoapatite/collagen composite. This material is highly biocompatible and has the nanostructure of artificial bone. It could be used in bone grafts and bone-tissue engineering, among other applications."
