Prof. Bonassar Interviewed by CNN

Prof. Bonassar was interviewed by CNN for his reaction to a recently published study about a clinical application of tissue engineered cartilage.  The story describes work in which researchers from China implanted tissue-engineered ears onto children with microtia, a congenital defect in which the external ear is malformed at birth.  The Bonassar lab has pioneered new techniques for manufacturing of engineered cartilage using techniques such as 3D printing and injection molding.  This new work paves the way for clinical trials of this technology in the near future.
