For applications related to the monitoring and stimulation of the activity of the central and peripheral nervous system
Graphene has a large surface area and high electrical conductivity; it is thin, strong and biocompatible. These qualities make it a perfect candidate for use in innovative medical devices with functional electrical stimulation in neural interface and implants. Other long-term applications of graphene could include its use in advanced cancer treatments or in matrices for tissue regeneration. In the field of biosensors, the optical and electrical properties of graphene (either in its exfoliated, quantum dot, or CVD form) allow it to be easily incorporated into a wide variety of sensors and biosensors for monitoring in healthcare and the environmental, food safety and quality, among other applications.
This cluster groups three projects in the field of medical devices, and more specifically for applications related to the monitoring and stimulation of the activity of the central and peripheral nervous system.
