Uncovering the nanostructure of one of nature’s superhero fibers: Collagen


Dr Katie Sizeland ANSTO, AU


Collagen is the everywhere and plays and important role in medical and agricultural industries. The structure of collagen imparts strength and elasticity to these biomaterials and using SAXS we have investigated its complex architecture and physical properties. By understanding the hierarchical structure and biomechanical response in these medical and agricultural materials we gain valuable insight into how we can optimize their performance.
