In this theme, the aim is to develop G2D-based membranes for topical applications to accelerate  wound healing and to promote wound antimicrobial resistance. ‘Smart’ membranes are envisioned by: a) control of selective permeability via chemical or physical modification for specific ions, water and other small molecules to modulate biological responses; b) incorporation of sensing features onto the membrane as an indicator of tissue physiology; c) release of therapeutic molecules from the membrane on-demand; and d) design of electroconductive membranes for synergistic biological effects.
