Nanofibers help nerves 

Northwestern University researchers have designed molecules made of biological parts, such as amino acids and fats, that self-assemble into cylindrical nanofibers. The researchers inject a solution of the molecules into the injured spinal cords of mice, where the nanofibers promote the growth of nerve fibers. Credit: Samuel Stupp, Northwestern University

I’m liking this blog here, too bad I can’t re-blog stuff from non-tumblr entities and that they haven’t published anything since 2011.
