Protein coating determines the cellular responses in the abdominal cavity after graphene oxide administration

Artur Filipe Rodrigues

University of Manchester

Filipe is a PhD student at the Nanomedicine Lab, based at University of Manchester, UK. After he worked on the production and characterisation of graphene oxide sheets with different lateral dimensions, he is now studying the biological impact of graphene oxide sheets in vivo, with a main interest on the impact in the respiratory system.


Graphene oxide (GO) is a graphene-based material that has attracted commercial interest in a wide range of applications, from inks and spray coatings to drug delivery. Understanding the toxicological profile of GO is crucial... [ view full abstract ]
