Breakthrough graphene biomaterial regenerates heart and nerve tissue

Money Quote: “We are very excited by the potential of this material for cardiac applications, but the capacity of the material to deliver physiological electrical stimuli while limiting infection suggests it might have potential in a number of other indications, such as repairing damaged peripheral nerves or perhaps even spinal cord… The technology also has potential applications where external devices such as biosensors and devices might interface with the body.”

Scientists Invent a New Steel as Strong as Titanium

Best Quote – “This new metal has a strength-to-weight ratio that matches even our best titanium alloys, but at one tenth the cost, and can be created on a small scale with machinery already used to make automotive-grade steel.”

Super-slick material makes steel better, stronger, cleaner

Best Quote #2 – “The material could have far-ranging applications and avenues for commercialization, including non-fouling medical tools and devices, such as implants and scalpels, nozzles for 3D printing and, potentially, larger-scale applications for buildings and marine vessels.
