Nanofiber breakthrough holds promise for medicine and microprocessors

Description (Polytechnic Institute of New York University) A new method for creating nanofibers made of proteins promises to greatly improve drug delivery methods, aid in regenerating human tissue, and pave the way to an organic method of building nanofibers for tiny, powerful microprocessors. Researchers at Polytechnic Institute of NYU discovered how to make nanofibers using the COMP protein found in human cartilage. By adding different metal ions, researchers found the fibers would absorb or release drug molecules.
