Electrically conductive materials encourage the electrophysiological development of cardiac cells

What is it about?

We developed electrically conductive materials to encourage the electrophysiological development of cardiac cells, and such materials may be useful for the treatment of cardiac-related conditions.

Why is it important?

Heart disease and other conditions are problems throughout the developing and developed world, and the materials developed here have the potential to help to treat damaged cardiac tissues.
