Welcome to Bio-Interfaced Electronics Laboratory
We explore real solutions for healthcare issues in modern society through understanding, exploiting and sharing multidisciplinary science and engineering in bioengineering, biology, materials science, chemistry, mechanics, and electronics engineering. We develop and apply biomedical electronics that provide medical diagnosis and treatment to contribute toward these ultimate goals.
We are entering a new age of personalized and customized biomedical care that requires high-quality and convenient care away from the hospital. This new paradigm urges us to provide the essential engineering keywords “Personal”, “Mobile”, and “Real-time”. Bio-interfaced electronics contributes to the realization of this paradigm in medical instruments and tools.
We in the Bio-Interfaced Electronics (BIE) Lab focus on 1. Biodegradable and minimum-invasive implants offering quick, safe medical treatment at complex levels of surgical care, and reducing the need for surgery, 2. Soft and conformal electronics providing interfaces to the human body from skin to organ and allowing carry-on medical electronics, 3. Biomedical device reliability promoting the safe use of recent biomedical devices in terms of time and biomechanical/chemical degradation
We have one opening for graduate student in the fall semester of 2020. Materials/chemistry/biology/mechanical major and/or other university students are preferred. Pre-interview period is January to February 2020.
