Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

Current practice of facial reconstruction is often below patients’ expectations. This could be improved by the use of 3D printed personalised bone scaffolds. In this study the biocompatibility of 5 potential binders for this process was investigated in vitro. None of the binders showed an overt toxic effect. However, all potential binders except for sodium trisilicate solution showed a cytostatic effect at concentrations of 100µM suggesting their use could result in an inhibitory affect on wound healing in vivo.
