Bio-molecular electronics

Research in this area

  • Molecular computation
  • Sensing and diagnostics
  • Biology/electronics interfaces

In this area we focus on the integration, detection and manipulation of biological materials using electronic devices. Our ultimate goal is to develop hybrid bioelectronic systems that merge the functions and properties of biological systems with the world of electronics.

This requires a highly multi-disciplinary approach to research. We collaborate closely with scientists and engineers from within physics, chemistry, molecular biology and the clinical sciences.

Our work spans several areas, including the design of electronic immunosensor arrays for healthcare diagnostics and environmental monitoring, the use of biological molecules for storage and manipulation of information, and fundamental studies on the nature of the inorganic-biology interface.
