Summary Ultrafine protein particles have been fabricated from natural fibres, such as silk and wool. Our studies suggested that particles could be used for fabricating tough macro-porous composites scaffolds for tissue engineering. They are also efficient for reversible binding of metal ions. We are currently analyzing the sorption properties, biocompatibility and biodegradability of a range of particles to evaluate possibility for biomedical and healthcare applications.
