Recognizing that sewing wounds shut at the millimeter level no longer made sense, researchers at Stanford University’s Medical School developed a bio-safe adhesive gel that binds the wounded area together, promoting tissue regrowth in the area and then harmlessly dissolving away when no longer needed. People familiar with the Trauma Center series will remember that there is an eerily similar implement that disinfects areas while also healing up small lacerations and acting as a binding gel for skin grafts and minor damage to blood vessels, among other uses.
