PhD Student’s work highlighted in Advanced Healthcare Materials

Daniela Duc has had her work, which was performed in part at the ANFF-Vic Biointerface Engineering Hub at Swinburne University of Technology, highlighted on the inside cover of Advanced Healthcare Materials. The publication is entitled Electrical Cell Stimulation: Fabrication of a Biocompatible Liquid Crystal Graphene Oxide–Gold Nanorods Electro‐ and Photoactive Interface for Cell Stimulation.

This work outlines the deposition of graphene oxide/gold nanorod composite surfaces for the growth of neuronal cells and utilized the air plasma reactor at the ANFF-Vic Biointerface Engineering Hub to make the substrates more hydrophilic prior to the graphene oxide coatings.

Daniela is a PhD student at Swinburne University of Technology working as part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science. This paper is the first from Daniela’s PhD. Daniela has also received a commendation for this article in Swinburne’s 2019 Faculty of Science Engineering and Technology – Higher degree by research awards.
