2D nanomaterials prolong growth factor release to mend cartilage

Researchers have designed a new class of two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials that are disc-shaped and flat on the surface, similar to a coin, to aid in treatments for cartilage repair. The nanomaterials' unique charge arrangement allows them to trap proteins or growth factors, which can be slowly released over time.
