Bioelectronics lab:Biomedical and electronic engineering

Bioelectronics is an interdisciplinary research field at the interface of the life sciences, physics, chemistry, and engineering. Our researchers have multi-disciplinary backgrounds, with experience in a wide range of fields, from electrical and electronic engineering, physics and mathematics, to chemistry, biology and medicine. In our department of Biomedical Engineering, you can study all of these fields, so it is an ideal department in which to study bioelectronics.

One of our current research topics is the induced contraction of tissue-engineered skeletal muscle, using electric fields. We are working on applications where tissue-engineered muscles can be used as actuators, and are also developing special forms of cellulose, derived from plant cell walls, for use as ecological liquid crystal display devices.
