Biology meets semiconductor technology: a new wave in health innovation explodes onto the scene.
Bioelectronic Medicine (BEM) provides the opportunity for targeted and personalized treatments of diseases and conditions in closed-loop control systems; it will revolutionize medicine and dramatically improve the outcomes of healthcare. It employs electrical, magnetic, optical, ultrasound, etc. pulses to affect and modify nerve behavior, which in turn impacts body functions as an alternative or supplement to drug-based interventions.
To develop a comprehensive Bioelectronic Medicine program, joint efforts of experts from different disciplines are needed: biology, chemistry, computer science, electrical engineering, materials science, medicine, neuroscience, neurosurgery, physics, and semiconductor technology.
BioElectronic Medicine themes:
- Modeling and Simulation
- Biocompatible Packaging
- Neuromodulation and Sensing
- BioElectronic Medicine Platform Functionality (Communication, Memory and Energy)
