The European Research Council has awarded a nearly $180,000 grant to a professor at Ireland's Trinity College to create a biodegradable 3D-printed implant that could help those with cartilage damage. "Our 3D-printed polymer posts will anchor the implant into the bone and will be porous to stimulate the migration of stem cells from the bone marrow into the body of the scaffold," said Daniel Kelly, the recipient of the grant.
