Effects of Inflammation on Implant Metal Corrosion

An inflammatory response, characterized by low pH and generation of reactive oxygen species, is provoked by the invasive nature of implanting metallic orthopaedic devices in the body. This project seeks to understand how the conditions created by the inflammatory response influence the corrosion of traditional and next-generation metals utilized for orthopaedic implants.
