Cell-based bioelectronics

Cell-based bioelectronics
The study of physiological activities of live organisms at the individual cell or organelle level is drawing great attention in various communities such as biomedical science, molecular and cell biology, and pharmacology. Connecting biological networks of cells to chip-based communication devices is a critical precondition for the development of biohybrid systems and cell based biosensors. The overall aim is to develop and study on-chip systems, in which individual cells in a network can be addressed via electrical and electrochemical interfaces. The goal of this research is to develop and investigate novel chip-based interfaces for communication with cells and cellular networks. The envisaged interfaces will rely on nanofabrication technology that will add a new dimension to the development of neural biohybrid systems.
