Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A biodegradable scaffold was designed for bone regeneration as well as for mechanical strength. As a result, a framework for osteoblast attachment with Elasticity compression (Ec) and E bending (Eb) on the same order of magnitude as trabecular bone was provided.
