Company co-founded by professor partners with Johnson and Johnson
Johnson and Johnson is partnering with Tissue Regeneration Systems Inc., a company co-founded by Harvey D. Spangler Professor of Biomedical Engineering William Murphy, to create 3D-printed implants to help treat bone defects. The 3D printing technology will enable the implants to be made specific to a patient's needs, and the implants will be resorbable, or capable of being assimilated back into the body. Potential application areas include treating injuries and orthopedic oncology. The partnership also includes contributions from DePuy Synthes Products LLC.
