A story titled “Smoother orthopedic implants may minimize bacterial adherence” (published September 18, 2015) incorrectly stated that the researchers for the study covered in this story had no conflicts of interest. The paragraph should have read: The study was supported by Stryker Corp. Dr. Christopher T. Born, the principal investigator for the study, is a consultant for Stryker. He also has stock ownership in Biointraface, does consulting for the company, and is a member of its board.
