Title: Delivering Gene and Protein-Based Drugs with Biodegradeable Graphene Oxide
Description: Researchers at the Northwestern University Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE) are developing nano-sized carrier vehicles based on biodegradeable graphene oxide for the delivery of gene and protein-based drugs. This image shows the sponge-like structure of a swollen graphene oxide film containing 80-nm thick lamellae. The thin tendrils of graphene oxide sheets can be seen as part of the corrugated lamellar network structure in the image.
