Welcome to the home page of the Center for Bone and Tissue Repair and Regeneration at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. The Director of the CBTRR is Professor Mohamed N. Rahaman.
The Center for Bone and Tissue Repair and Regeneration (CBTRR) is a multidisciplinary research center with a mission to research and develop advanced biomaterials and biomedical devices for the repair and regeneration of bone and soft tissues.
The objectives of the Center are to:
|Scanning electron microscope image of bioactive glass scaffold (right) with a structure almost identical to that of human trabecular bone (left). Bioactive glass has a widely recognized ability to enhance bone formation and to bond to surrounding bone and soft tissues in vivo. Bioactive glass scaffolds with this ‘trabecular’ architecture and with other biologically relevant architectures are currently under development in the CBTRR for the repair and regeneration of damaged or diseased bone, such as traumatic bone injuries suffered in war or in automobile accidents, bone resection for tumors, and bone loss from complex revision hip and knee surgery.|
