Why Graphene Week?
Graphene week is the most important conference worldwide on graphene and graphene-based nanomaterials. Based on the large success of this conference in the past two years I expect it will be a great chance to meet others scientists that may share with me their knowledge and passion for this fascinating material.
What will your talk be about?
My talk will be about the interaction of graphene with immune cells. Graphene is attracting great interest in biomedical sciences. The impact of graphene on immune cells is one fundamental area of study that is often overlooked, but critical in terms of clinical translation. We have to take into consideration that the majority of graphene biomedical applications will require intravenous administration with the implication that immune cells will be the initial biological components to interact with. I will talk about our recent results in this context especially using primary human cells from healthy donors, exploring the impact of graphene at the gene and protein level.
