mRNA-based vaccines are well known now because of the fight against Covid-19. But they have many other potential applications and Elizabeth Rosado's research group has been successful in using them to stimulate the growth of new bones to heal severe fractures. In fact, the technique seems to work much better than current alternatives.
The paper describing the results of their exciting work was just published in Science Advances and Elizabeth was interviewed by BBC in their weekly radio programme Science in Action. Her work was also discussed in the Dutch BNR news radio station.
