The Center for Bioelectronics is the hub for a variety of research activities that employs an interdisciplinary approach to address complex medical research problems.
Focus Research Areas
Biomaterials, Biosensors & Bioelectronics
The Center for Bioelectronics develops benign or bioactive biomaterials such as allografts and scaffolds for cell, drug and controlled biotherapeutics delivery. We are developing innovative biomaterials, biosensor and bioelectronic devices that interact with biological systems to elicit the prescribed responses and biological integration as well as to serve as test beds to translate these technologies into clinical applications.
The research conducted in the field of neuroscience at the center focus on the functioning of neural cells and systems and relationship between neural activity and behavior and cognitive processing. We are developing various technology to study and interact with neural systems including biomaterials, electrophysiology, neural interfacing electronics, computational modeling and multi-dimensional data analysis.
Drug Development & Delivery
Pharmaceuticals save lives as well as alleviate pain. The Center for Bioelectrics is working of a variety of approaches to improve pharmaceuticals through research on drug design and development and drug delivery. Our research in this area has the potential to impact healthcare by making pharmaceuticals more effective, cost effective and convenient for patients.
Regenerative Medicine & Wound Healing
The fields of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering are truly remarkable because they have yielded a more intimate understanding of the functioning of human tissue and organ, where our research goes beyond tissue engineering to include repair and regeneration.
