Prof. Dr. Muhammad Tayyab Ansari in 4th Annual International Pharmacy Scientific Symposium & Poster Exhibition at University of Central Punjab (UCP), Lahore, Pakistan, 11-12 May, 2018

Prof. Dr. Muhammad Tayyab Ansari Participated as Guest speaker and delivered talk entitled "Graphene in future Medicine" in 4th Annual International Pharmacy Scientific Symposium & Poster Exhibition (Research Trends in Nanotechnology & Health Practices) at University of Central Punjab (UCP), Lahore, Pakistan, 11-12 May, 2018.


In his speech Prof. Dr. Muhammad Tayyab Ansari pointed out that Graphene is a form of carbon consisting of planar sheets which are one atom thick, with the atoms arranged in a honeycomb-shaped lattice. It is an allotrope (form) of carbon consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice.

It was discovered, isolated, and characterized in 2004 by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at the University of Manchester (Novoselov et al, 2004). This work resulted in the 02 winning the Nobel Prize in 2010 "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the 2-dimensional material graphene.

Graphene has a wide range of potential applications in electronics and optoelectronics, energy conversion and storage, catalysis and environmental applications.

Recently, the biological applications of graphene and graphene-related nanomaterials have attracted attention in the scientific community based on their great potential for use in Bio-imaging, Cancer Theragnosis, Gene delivery, Tissue engineering, Bio-sensing, DNA sequencing, Drug delivery.
