Biomedical applications of carbon nanotubes

Marta Roldo, D. Fatouros

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The last two decades have witnessed a wealth of research addressing the possible biomedical applications of carbon nanotubes. These new nanomaterials possess unique properties but, at the same time, present several challenges including poor solubility, potential toxicity and biopersistance. The present work reviews recent research advances in how to overcome these challenges and how new avenues are opening for applications such as drug delivery, tissue engineering and biosensing thanks to the use of carbon nanotubes.
