A Fully 3D Interconnected Graphene–Carbon Nanotube Web Allows the Study of Glioma Infiltration in Bioengineered 3D Cortex‐Like Networks

Full Article:


In the article number 1806132, Guosheng Cheng, Francesco Paolo Ulloa Severino, Vincent Torre, and co‐workers develop a 3D graphene–CNT web which is fully geometrically, mechanically, and electrically interconnected. This monolithic scaffold allows the production of a functional 3D cortex‐like network for reconstructing the 3D trajectories and velocity distribution of individual infiltrating glioma, which represents a novel model for preclinical screening of anticancer drugs.
