Agata Skwarczyńska and her team of researchers are developing ways to help regenerate damaged tissue inside human bodies as an alternative to organ or tissue transplants. Skwarczynska has developed an injectable, biohybrid “scaffold” made of calcium and phosphorous that aids in replacing or regenerating damaged tissue while restoring the organ’s specific function. Skwarczynska sees her developments being used in bone-regeneration applications as well. The injectable nature of this innovation makes it completely unique and opens up a world of possibilities. The technology is still in a developmental stage but its potential impact is significant.
