Graphene for Healing Damaged Muscles

Graphene for Healing Damaged Muscles

Iranian researchers at the stem cell technology research centers of Tarbiat Modarres University and Sharif University of Technology used grapheme (a form of carbon) to synthesize a scaffold to treat damaged muscles. “Researchers produced polymeric nanofibers and used graphene to synthesize a scaffold with optimized properties that can be used in the treatment of damaged muscle tissues,” reports the Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC). The project is in the in-vitro trial run phase. In the past few decades, graphene oxide sheets have attracted the attention of researchers in tissue engineering due to their high physicochemical properties and biocompatibility in various aspects such as biosensors and smart drug delivery.
