New pediatric heart-imperfection patches designed at Rice University

A group drove by bioengineer Jeffrey Jacot and synthetic specialist and scientist Matteo Pasquali made the patches implanted with conductive single-walled carbon nanotubes. The patches are made of a wipe like bioscaffold that contains tiny pores and imitates the body’s extracellular framework. The nanotubes defeat a constraint of flow patches in which pore dividers ruin […]
