Self-Assembling Peptide Nanofibers for Rapid Hemostasis

My research is focused on the use of small peptide nanofibers for rapid hemostasis. Using the layer-by-layer method for film assembly, the hemostat can be combined with the delivery of other drugs. These films can be coated onto various substrates such as bandages or surgical sponges.
