This technology is a high-temperature self-repairing carbide ceramic matrix composite. It is produced using titanium and a porous CfC composite preform matrix. Titanium and the composite preform matrix are placed in a crucible and spark plasma sintering is used to melt titanium so that it...

Central to the wellbeing of any living organism is the nucleus of the cell. It stores and organises genetic information and protects this information from other cellular components. The nucleus also communicates with the rest of the cell, exchanges proteins and RNA, and facilitates several important...

Transport Distraction Osteogenesis (TDO) is a specialist method of bone reconstruction. Bone growth is facilitated to fill a space when a small segment of bone is gradually advanced across the space using a device known as a distractor. Bone regeneration is stimulated via stem cell differentiation...
