Nanotechnology brings new applications to textiles, including many biomedical benefits.

Abstract:
Gorga said researches are exploring in the field of nanotechnology, creating fibers on the scale of a billionth of a meter.

"In my group we use carbon nanotubes to enhance mechanical, electrical and thermal properties of conventional and nanofibers," he said. "We have been collaborating with the Biomedical Engineering and Physics departments to develop tissue engineering scaffolds for cell growth and differentiation."
