GMG and University of Queensland collaboration on graphene-enhanced batteries gets Australian Economic Accelerator funding

A partnership between the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) of The University of Queensland (UQ) and Graphene Manufacturing Group will aim to push forward the commercialization of graphene-enhanced batteries. The parties received financial support from the Australian Federal Government Economic Accelerator Seed Grant to promote the development of Graphene Aluminium-Ion Battery Technology.

“UQ will supply the material engineering technology and GMG has the battery fabrication facility so together we can further develop the Graphene Aluminium-Ion Battery Technology,” AIBN's Dr. Xiaodan Huang said. “A key feature of this battery technology is the faster recharging rate and longer life.

A new Horizon Europe project called 2D-BioPAD is launched

2D-BioPAD is the name of a new Horizon Europe project that was recently launched. With a nearly €6 million budget, 2D-BioPAD will develop a diagnostic system for early Alzheimer's disease detection. This Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Action funded by the European Union, officially commenced on October 2023 and will go on for 48 months.

2D-BioPAD is developing a fast, reliable, cost-effective and digitally enabled point-of-care in vitro diagnostic system for early Alzheimer's disease detection. The 2D-BioPAD system will make use of cutting-edge 2D materials (i.e., graphene), nanomaterials and aptamers, to enhance biocompatibility, sensitivity and specificity for the simultaneous detection of up to five Alzheimer’s biomarkers in blood. The device will be accompanied by a user-friendly mobile app that will give healthcare professionals real-time access to quantified results in primary healthcare settings. Along the way, artificial intelligence will be used to optimize the design and implementation of the 2D-BioPAD system.
