Method to impart electro- and biofunctionality to neural scaffolds using graphene-polyelectrolyte multilayers

Zhou, Kun; Thouas, George A; Bernard, Claude C; Nisbet, David; Finkelstein, David; Li, Dan; Forsythe, John S.


Electroactive scaffolds that are passively conductive and able to transmit applied electrical stimuli are of increasing importance for neural tissue engineering. Here, we report a process of rendering both 2D and 3D polymer scaffolds electrically conducting, while also enhancing neuron attachment. Graphene-heparin/poly-l-lysine polyelectrolytes were assembled via layer-by-layer (LbL) deposition onto 2D surfaces and 3D electrospun nanofibers. The employed LbL coating technique in this work...[Show more]
