Development research of a synthetic bone material, which will accept blood flow and be able to be shaped in surgery. This material also strength and porosity advantages. Picture shows a specimen of the synthetic bone with a well-plate of test pieces being assessed for cell growth. The sample can be seen to have an open structure leading to high porosity which would enable penetration by blood vessels and hence to assimilation by the body
