Bio-Integrated Electronics, Optoelectronics, Microfluidics and MEMS

In this project, we are developing collections of ideas in materials science and device design to create biocompatible classes of microsystems technologies, with uses in biological research and clinical medicine. Our most active areas are in neurotechnologies and in biomedical devices for human health. Recent accomplishments range from the first fully implantable, cellular-scale light sources for optogenetics research to the first wireless, skin-like systems for vital signs monitoring in neonatal intensive care to the first bioresorbable electronic medicines. Details of these and other projects can be found at the website for our Center for Bio-Integrated Electronics here at Northwestern University.
