Bioelectrics Research



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.
