An Irish team of researchers led by Prof Fergal O’Brien at RCSI, have made an exciting breakthrough, having developed a new organic material which harnesses the body’s own regenerative power to repair damaged bones and cartilage.   Fergal’s company Surgacoll can demonstrate some great advances in both animal and human health care, and we will also meet Ireland and Leinster rugby star Gordon Darcy who discusses the potential impact of this ground-breaking research in elite sports.
