Carbon Nanotubes in Regenerative Medicine

  title={Carbon Nanotubes in Regenerative Medicine},
  author={Bhavna S. Paratala and B. Sitharaman},
This chapter focuses on the latest developments in applications of carbonnanotubes (CNTs) for regenerative medicine. Regenerative Medicine focuses on technologies to create functional tissues to repair or replace tissues or organs lost due to trauma or disease. Carbon nonotubes (CNTs) have been under investigation in the past decade for an array of applications due to their unique and versatile properties. In the field of regenerative medicine, they have shown great promise to improve the… Expand
