Method of Making Biocompatible Protein Gel and Conductive Protein Gel

Sungkyunkwan University Foundation for Collaborate Business Team, Kyunggido, Korea

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The invention is directed to a method of making biocompatible protein gel using protein engineering and more particularly, biocompatible conductive protein gel including beta-amino acid residues and nanomaterial. Thereby, it can be used in potential applications as a biomaterial for bone regeneration, drug delivery and tissue engineering.

Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The existing medical polymers are naturally destroyed due to an immune response from the body to a foreign body.Metal and ceramic materials are difficult to apply them in the body.This technology can replace existing medical-materials, have competitive power in the bio-market, and can occupy the market.
