Theme: Brains & Machines

One of the most important scientific and technological frontiers of our time is the interfacing of electronics with the human brain. This endeavour promises to help understand how the brain works and deliver new tools for diagnosis and treatment of pathologies including epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. Current solutions, however, are limited by the materials that are brought in contact with the tissue and transduce signals across the biotic/abiotic interface. Recent advances in electronics have made available materials with a unique combination of attractive properties, including mechanical flexibility, mixed ionic/electronic conduction, enhanced biocompatibility, and capability for drug delivery. Professor Malliaras will present examples of novel devices for recording and stimulation of neurons and show that organic electronic materials offer tremendous opportunities to study the brain and treat its pathologies.

George Malliaras received a PhD from the University of Groningen (Netherlands) and taught at Cornell (NY, USA ) and School of Mines (France) before joining Cambridge. His research on electronics and bioelectronics has been recognised with awards from the NY Academy of Sciences, the US National Science Foundation, and DuPont, and a Honorary Doctorate from the University of Linköping (Sweden). He is a Fellow of the Materials Research Society and of the Royal Society of Chemistry and serves as Deputy Editor of Science Advances.
