The existing “one-size-fits-all” approach in healthcare is gradually shifting to a more proactive and personalized model. New, adaptable to the purpose technologies that allow device integration with biological tissue are hence immediately needed and, as most technologies are limited by the materials used, materials research and development will be the key driver for this. In this seminar, the speakers will focus on organic electronic materials as a promising candidate for interfacing with biology as well as for satisfying the high technological demands of electronics industry. In particular, the speakers will discuss the use of electrically conducting polymer-based biomimetic devices coupled with i) functional bacterial membranes for high throughput antibiotics screening as well as, ii) complex 3D cell cultures toward the development of organ-on-chip platform that allows for dynamic assessment of tissue growth.
