3D Printing Neurons with Graphene: Stretching the Possibilities at Northwestern University

Recently, 3D Printing Industry reported on Michigan Tech’s Tolou Shokuhfarexperimenting with graphene-based biomaterials to produce a “bioink” that can replace and re-stimulate growth in cartilage and nerve cells. Graphene has long been a material of interest for biomedical, engineering, … Continue reading “3D Printing Neurons with Graphene: Stretching the Possibilities at Northwestern University”
