Improving Implants

Dr Rylie Green (Senior Lecturer in Bioengineering)
What are the best coatings for medical implants?

Implants have come a long way since the wooden leg, but we’re constantly improving our medical technology. The paradigm is shifting to not settling with our bodies not rejecting the implant, but striving to encourage growth and repair?

Join Aussie Dr Rylie Green on a journey inside the body to discover cutting edge bioactive polymer technology.
