​​​Nature Symposium: Exploring graphene for biomedical applications

Graphene has recently started being explored in the context of biomedical applications. Nature Materials, Nature Physics and the Graphene Flagship are organising a Nature Symposium on Biomedical Applications to discuss the potential of graphene in biosensors, diagnostic devices and bioelectronic implants. Leading experts in these fields will provide an overview on the state of the art, and will delineate the research directions to follow and the challenges that graphene researchers are called to address.

The Nature Symposium 2016 is organised in cooperation with:
