Talk: Bioelectronics is an emerging scientific field, which promises to bridge the gap between biology and electronics by bringing the two distinct fields together on a single platforms to fabricate sensitive and novel biomedical devices. The field of bioelectronics is fuelled by innovations in electronics, materials and bioengineering. Bioelectronics and biomedical research has received a strong boost with the advent of additive manufacturing techniques like direct-write and 3D bioprinting. The talk will focus on interfacing printed electronics and biomaterials (with and without cells) for added functionalities. Printing, optimizing and characterizing electronic circuits on bio-scaffolds/ biomaterials catered to various applications, thus trying to understand 3D printing capabilities will be discussed.

 

Shweta Agarwala obtained her M.Sc. and Ph.D. in electronics engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore in 2008 and 2012 respectively. During this period, she worked on synthesis of nanomaterials and fabrication of photovoltaic and gas sensing devices. In 2012, she joined Energy Research Institute ERI@N at NTU as research fellow. Currently, she is post-doctoral fellow at Singapore Centre for 3D Printing, NTU, where her research focuses on additive manufacturing route of aerosol jet, inkjet and bio-printing to fabricate novel electronic, bioelectronic and hybrid structures. Her work is multidisciplinary in nature and provides a useful link between additive manufacturing, electronics, material science, and biotechnology.
