Bio-inspired Microsystems Laboratory (BML) aims to realize self-contained smart microsystems that will interface people with nature, machine and even their own bodies with many electronic devices seamlessly. It basically detects analog signals from nature and human body and coverts them to electrical signals that we can manage to extract and generate meaningful data. The system will be implemented on a single chip platform based on modern analog and digital VLSI circuits and systems technology. We are especially interested in imaging and bio-related applications to detect specific biomolecules such as cancer cells and target DNAs for point-of-care diagnostics, and to record and stimulate neurons in a brain and muscle for human-machine interface and novel implantable prosthetics.
Our group has been studying following research topics.
- Integrated imaging systems
- Implantable/wearable neural recording devices
- Massively parallel cell analysis platforms
