Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Considerable effort has been devoted to generating novel protein-and peptide-based nanomaterials with their applications in a wide range of fields. Specifically, the unique property of proteins to self-assemble has been utilized to create a variety of nanoassemblies, which offer significant possibilities for next-generation biomaterials. In this minireview, we describe self-assembled protein-and peptide-based nanomaterials with focus on nanofibers and nanoparticles. Their applications in delivering therapeutic drugs and genes are discussed. ©
