Brief description Growth plate cartilage is responsible for bone growth in children. Its injury is common and is often repaired undesirably by bony tissue which causes significant bone growth defects. This project will develop a biological treatment through mobilising endogenous progenitor cells to enhance growth plate regeneration and prevent bone growth defects, which will allow patients to avoid highly invasive/costly corrective surgeries.
