The Next Frontier: Bioelectronic Interfaces
Prof. Mark A. Reed, Yale University
High-performance microelectronic systems (e.g. computers) and bioelectrochemical systems (e.g. living organisms) are both highly developed, complex systems capable of advanced signal processing and computing – yet are fundamentally different at nearly every level (mechanism, device, architecture, etc). A major step in understanding these differences will be the ability to effectively interface between these systems. Recent progress in nanoscale sensors have enabled integrated biochemical sensors that have demonstrated ultrasensitive macromolecule detection, and real-time cell biochemical response. This talk will review the recent progress, the outstanding scientific challenges, and some exciting potential applications in this rapidly growing new field.
