Porous silicon biosensor for the detection of autoimmune diseases
(SPIE Digital Library, 2007)
Controlling the surface functionalities of nanoporous alumina membranes
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 2010)
A new approach for controlling and to functionalise nanoporous anodic alumina oxide (AAO) membranes is described. Our approach is predicated on the remarkable stability of the silanised AAO surface during anodisation. Well ...
Multivalent Circular Aptamers: Versatile Nanostructures for Biomedical Applications
(NANO SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY INSTITUTE, 2005)
Co-deposition of a biphosphonate with hydroxyapatite for improved implant fixation
(Biomedical Engineering Society, 2005)
A novel pressed porous silicon-polycaprolactone composite as a dual-purpose implant for the delivery of cells and drugs to the eye.
Dysfunction of corneal epithelial stem cells can result in painful and blinding disease of the ocular surface. In such cases, treatment may involve transfer of growth factor and normal adult stem cells to the ocular surface. ...
Oral Mucosal Epithelial Cells Grown on Porous Silicon Membrane for Transfer to the Rat Eye
(Springer Nature, 2017-08-30)
Dysfunction of limbal stem cells or their niche can result in painful, potentially sight-threatening ocular surface disease. We examined the utility of surface-modified porous-silicon (pSi) membranes as a scaffold for the ...
Controlled drug delivery from composites of nanostructured porous silicon and poly(L-lactide)
(Future Medicine, 2012-03-06)
Porous silicon (pSi) and poly(l-lactide) (PLLA) both display good biocompatibility and tunable degradation behavior, suggesting that composites of both materials are suitable candidates as biomaterials for localized drug ...
