TRI/Princeton Receives NIH Grant "Nanofibrous Supports for Biomedical Sensors" - News Item

TRI/Princeton’s Center for Modeling and Characterization of Nanoporous Materials recently received a two-year exploratory project from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) entitled "Nanofibrous Supports for Biomedical Sensors" under the program Development of Advanced Biomaterials. The project will be performed under the direction of TRI/Princeton Research Director Dr. Alexander V. Neimark.

Nanofibrous supports (NFS) are high-area permeable supports fabricated from conductive polymers and carbon nanotubes. The main focus of this research will be to develop novel nanofibrous supports for biosensor encasing and to design NFS-based biosensor nanofluidic systems. Nanofibrous supports with designed hierarchical pore structure architecture can provide a unique environment to monitor the vital statistics and biological functions of humans, due to controlled fluid delivery and retention, and ability to facilitate direct electron transfer.
