New material made of alginate graphene oxide has range of medical, biological applications In a new study, researchers analyzed alginate graphene oxide and assessed its potential for use in organ 3D printing. They further suggested its relevance to cancer immunotherapies, drug delivery and tissue engineering. University researchers recently published a study analyzing the material properties of alginate graphene oxide, which could lead to new developments in both cancer research and 3D printing technology for human organ printing. The team aims to simulate the environment in which tumors grow and use that simulation to predict the response of human cells to tumor growth.“There’s (an) ongoing hypothesis that if you make (a cell) matrix that’s disregulated and stiffer … (it may) also support more aggressive tumor cells,” said Ian Wong, associate professor of molecular pharmacology, physiology, biotechnology and engineering, who oversaw the study. The adjustable stiffness of alginate GO allows researchers […]
