Researchers use graphene to heal damaged muscles

hopeformuscuIranian researchers from Stem Cell Technology Research Center, Tarbiat Modarres University and Sharif University of Technology used graphene to synthesize a scaffold to treat damaged muscles.

According to Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC), 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.

In the past few decades, polymeric nanofibrous membranes and carbon-based nanostructured materials have been introduced in tissue engineering as scaffolds. Graphene and graphene oxide sheets have also attracted the attention of researchers due to their high physicochemical properties and biocompatibility in various aspects such as biosensors and smart drug delivery.
