Professor Anthony Weiss is part of a team of biomedical engineers from the University of Sydney and the United States that has developed a futuristic surgical glue, called MeTro.

As clinical trials begin, Professor Weiss believes the breakthrough is another feather in the cap for the Australian medical industry.
