Summary on Grant Application Form
This proposal is focussed on addressing major unmet clinical needs in the repair and rehabilitation of non-union fractures. A non-union is a broken bone that fails to heal. These result from both civilian and military injuries and lead to pain, suffering and loss of dignity. The initial UNIFY network working with the Trauma Health Technology Cooperative has identified that more fundamental understanding is required of bone formation to address non-union and other closely related disease states. UNIFY Plus builds on UNIFY to permit work to better structure the field and feasibility studies of promising approaches to address the issues.
