Method of Making Biocompatible Protein Gel and Conductive Protein Gel
Sungkyunkwan University Foundation for Collaborate Business Team, Kyunggido, Korea
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.
