Versatile and flexible

Dear Sir or Madam,

Protein nanofibers exist at many places in nature, for example in our bodies as part of tendons and other kinds of tissue. Jena researchers have now found a way to artificially create these fibers with properties they desire. This makes the fibers especially interesting for regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. Learn in our current interview at COMPAMED-tradefair.com how they are made!

Have a nice weekend,

Timo Roth

When the heart skips a beat, cardiac pacemakers can help to restore the heart's rhythm. Batteries deliver the needed power. As part of the finished product, they play an important role because their feasible size and characteristics must already be considered during the implant planning process.

Science keeps taking cues from nature. Medical technology also often uses materials from nature or finds inspiration in natural phenomena – as is the case with protein nanofibers. Due to their outstanding properties, a reproduction of this natural building block is especially valuable for medical purposes.
