Building bones

As new technologies continue to evolve, 3D printing bones have become a reality. Bio-engineers are developing degradable bones that, once placed in a human body, will eventually be replaced by a person’s own growing bone tissue. We go inside the lab of the Syracuse Biomaterials Institute to learn more.
