Need a new nose? Biocompatible, highly porous monolithic scaffolds have been prepared by electron-beam-initiated free-radical polymerization and ring-opening metathesis polymerization. These scaffolds can be used for the in vitro construction of equivalents to bone and fatty tissue. Thus, autologous stem cells have been differentiated into both lipoblasts and osteocytes.
