A project embarked on by TÜBİTAK's Research and Support Department (ARDEB) on white goods, automotives and the aviation sector has coincidentally lead instead to the discovery of artificial skin and bones.
Prof. Dr. İskender Yılgör from Koç University has created a synthesized biocompatible polymeric material which can be transformed into three-dimensional skeletal tissue through a mechatronic system which was developed by Prof. İsmail Lazoğlu. Prof. Dr. Halil Kavaklı then adds tissue and bone cells to the skeletal tissue developed in order to systematically grow artificial tissue and bone cells. Through this method, Turkish scientists have now discovered how to take stem cells from the patient themselves, which they can then use to create unique artificial bone or tissue grafts. This special treatment can be used to fix bone fractures or bone damage through burns.
