Bone defects, caused by infections, tumours, traumas, or congenial deformity, usually needs surgical interference and to be repaired with bone grafts or biomaterials. The traditional bone repair strategies usually have slow regeneration rate due to the poor cell adhesion and poor differentiation induction capacity of bone repair materials. In this project, novel biomaterials will be developed to promote the differentiation of bone marrow stem cell for bone regeneration.
