Implants with attached drugs/topological features for bioavailability

Specific Opportunity

New and improved structural materials and surface modifications for load bearing human medical implants resorbable, biocompatible ceramics and engineered tissues for spinal fusions, maxillo-and cranio-facial implants and bone defect applications. Modification of existing implant and bone replacement materials to enhance bone healing with therapeutics and trace metallic improve biocompatibility of Ti (widely used metal in implants) and its alloys for faster osseo-integration, improved healing time,  and reduced post-surgical infections.
