Enhancing Human Health Through Material Science

By manipulating the physical characteristics of matter at its smallest sizes, researchers can create materials that are stronger, more flexible, and more durable at the macro scale. We look at two labs doing just that: one creating biomaterials for stem cell transplants and tissue regeneration, and the second manufacturing customized medical devices and implants for newborns.
