Silver-coated carbon nanotubes (AgCNTs) are well documented for their antibacterial properties. However, aqueous dispersions of AgCNTs could be less effective against bacteria due to their tendency to agglomerate when re-suspended in water. In this study [...]
In the present study, three surface modified fabrics were investigated for their bacterial attachment properties using Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (gram –ve) and Staphylococcus aureus (gram+ve) bacteria. Our results indicate that surface modified fabric show [...]
After billions of years of evolution, the natural nacre, consisting of almost 95 vol% inorganic plates (aragonite calcium carbonate) and 5 vol% organic macromolecules (elastic biopolymer), shows a unique combination of the remarkable strength and [...]
Biology is unparalleled in the replication of complex structures with diverse functions on the molecular and cellular scale. By using biological materials to assemble structures, process information, and harness energy, the emerging field of synthetic [...]
Current methods of detecting food-borne pathogens take days to show and confirm results. There is a need for devices that decrease detection time. A field-capable rapid-detection device is being developed and in this study it [...]
Stem cell transplantation or injection is associated with neuroprotection in stroke and in central nervous system (CNS) injury. However, role of stem cells in hyperthermia induced brain pathology is not investigated so far. Our previous [...]
There is an ongoing development to improve osseointegration of bone-anchored implants. Despite progress, further improvements are needed in order to allow treatment of patients that suffers from low bone amounts or poor bone quality, and [...]
Glucose biofuel cells are promising candidates to supply implanted electronic devices by converting the chemical energy of glucose, present in body fluids, into electric power. Before such biofuel cells can become realistic alternatives compared to [...]
A series of novel 3D osteochondral computer aided models were designed including a homogenous cross-hatched structure, a bi-phasic structure consisting of a cross hatched pattern and an intersecting rings structure, and a biphasic “key” model [...]
The current work focused on the manufacture of a three-dimensional biphasic nanocomposite scaffold for osteochondral regeneration. Extrusion-based 3D printing in combination with ultraviolet light induced photocrosslinking allowed for good integration of two disparate polymeric materials [...]

Lipid nanocarriers are considered as suitable carriers to formulate lipophilic drugs, transport them and also deliver more specifically at appropriate biological sites. Based on oil-in-water template emulsion, we have been developing nanodroplets as drug or [...]
In the context of drug design and protein engineering, understanding the nature of allosteric networks is of particular interest. A pre-condition for successfully developing a rational design of proteins that incorporates allostery is the capability [...]
New strategies to fabricate nanomaterials of desired physicochemical properties open up new avenues to use nanomaterials for diverse biological applications. In this context, we demonstrate a green and single step synthesis method to obtain monometallic [...]
Engineered multifunctional nanowires as novel biosensing tools for highly sensitive detection and Biosensors as innovative tools for detection of food borne pathogens and environmental virology have been well documented. Advanced applications require appropriate chemical functionalization [...]
The utilization of supercritical fluids (SCFs) can lead to the development of materials with unique chemical or physical characteristics that make them suitable for specialized applications. One such technique is synthesizing with supercritical fluids, where [...]
Bio-templated assembly of inorganic materials is a promising technique for facile bottom-up assembly of complex and unique nanostructures at ambient conditions. Here, viral-templated nanocrystalline gold nanowires were synthesized for use in highly sensitive H2S sensors [...]

Dental caries is a wide spread public health problem, despite much effort in health promotion. Caries at the margins of restorations has been the main reason for failure. The development of direct-filling dental materials with [...]
Palladium (Pd) has been widely used for H2 sensing applications because it readily forms a solid solution with hydrogen, modifying electrical resistance. Because the resistance change is diffusion-limited, Pd nanostructured materials with large surface area [...]
Nanoparticles prepared from biocompatible and biodegradable materials have attracted considerable attention in food and pharmaceutical science. Starch is one of abundant biopolymer. In this study, starch nanoparticles were produced by desolvation method and the influence [...]
