Key points from article :
Phosphate graphene acts as a scaffold allowing cells to rapidly reform the damaged bone.
Graphene is a carbon nanomaterial that have infinite potential to vary the molecular composition.
Bone cells bond and grow while breaking down the graphene lattice effectively.
This scaffold can work with or without bone marrow stromal cells, so it simplifies treatment plans.
Could pave way to producing stronger bones and preventing future breaks as well.
