SEMINAR of the LAUSANNE INTEGRATIVE METABOLISM and NUTRITION ALLIANCE (LIMNA) Abstract: Skeletal muscle has the remarkable ability to regenerate following injury. This property is mainly due to a muscle stem cell (MuSC) population known as satellite cells. Among cell types observed within the injured muscle are macrophages, described to modulate the regenerative process. This is ...

Electron irradiation of aromatic self-assembled monolayers results in their conversion into a novel 2D carbon material - Carbon Nanomembranes (CNMs) - molecular nanosheets with a thickness of ~ 1 nm [1]. Similar to graphene or other atomically thin 2D materials (hBN, MoS2, etc.) CNMs possess mechanical integrity and therefore can be transferred from their original ...
