Syracuse University's Biomaterials Institute (SBI) used to be something of a drifter. Spread out across multiple campuses, it was homeless. Today that gets changed.
The institute's lab opened today at Bowne Hall, one of Syracuse University's oldest buildings. Researchers in chemistry, biology and engineering will now have a central location, as they look at how biomaterials can help repair organ tissue, facilitate drug delivery, or repair cartilage - and to figure out how to commercialize those breakthroughs.
