NIH funded research at Rutgers University has resulted in the development of new materials for biomedical applications. One example is a new resorbable cardiovascular stent that can replace the metal stents currently in use, which remain in the body and often cause long-term complications. This stent also delivers medication and is radio-opaque, allowing imaging and controlled monitoring of the re-absorption process.
