Bioelectronic Devices & Conducting Biomaterials

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm
Track: Sensory Biomaterials and Tissues
Room: Virtual


Bioelectronics, electronics designed to interface with biology in vitro and in vivo, are an important class of biomaterials that are gaining significant interest. Bioelectronic devices include: (i) wearable sensors for health monitoring, (ii) in vitro diagnostics and biosensors that provide an electrical signal output proportional to an analyte, (iii) implantable devices (e.g. pacemakers, blood glucose monitoring, drug delivery, optoelectronics), (iv) electrophysiology (ECG, EMG, EEG) and (v) electrical stimulation of cells or tissues for tissue engineering, enhanced regeneration and therapeutic intervention. This symposium will highlight recent efforts in bioelectronic devices and electronically & ionically conducting biomaterials as well as their in vitro and in vivo application. Presentations will also cover material and fabrication advances for improved properties such as size, softness, flexibility, degradability, biocompatibility, and biointegration.

Moderator: Alexandra Rutz
