Translating graphene and 2D materials into medicine

Nature Reviews Materials, 2016; 1: 16084  Kostas Kostarelos Adoption of graphene and other 2D crystals in biomedicine is challenging — some guidelines to facilitate this process and avoid inflated expectations should be considered. Advanced materials are key contributors to the development of next-generation medical technologies. The advent of carbon-based nanostructures and 2D…
