Harrisburg University Researchers Working to 3D Print Collagen to Make Safer, Less Expensive Skin Grafts

Surgeons put a lot of time into performing skin grafts to repair skin that’s been burned, sliced, and otherwise damaged so badly it’s unable to heal itself. The most common type of graft procedure covers the visible wound area using harvested skin from a less visible area. Some synthetic grafts can cause issues after the […]
