Researchers from the Faculty of Animal Sciences of WULS-SGGW demonstrated that graphene can destroy cancer cells. The team of Professor Ewa Sawosz-Chwalibóg from the Department of nanobiotechnology discovered that graphene is adjacent to the tumor cell and forms a thin layer around it, cutting off the supply of oxygen and nutrients, leading to its death. Graphene not only kills cancer cells but can also be an excellent carrier of other substances.
