Did you know that osteoporotic fracture is a concern for 30% of women and 8% of men over 50? You might find it interesting that graphene can help people whose bones need regeneration. That very issue was the topic of Adrian Chlanda’s speech at the InterNanoPoland conference on nanotechnology and the advanced materials sector.
For instance, flake graphene and its derivatives represent a promising material for imparting new, biomedically relevant properties, functions, and applications. Graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO), among many immanent properties, confer bolstering of roughness, mechanical properties, surface wettability, and surface potential of the resulting material. Moreover, graphene oxide and reduced graphene oxide promote the desired cellular response.
Biomedical applications of G-Flake® graphene materials synthesized at Łukasiewicz – Institute of Microelectronics and Photonics cover multiple biomedical fields, including: tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug delivery systems, graphene-based layers of 3D scaffolds, and sensors just to name a few.
Graphene is the future happening today.
