We investigate complex interfaces. Our fundamental research focuses on interfaces between bioelectronics and biology, to understand their therapeutic potential.

We also consider other interfaces - such as improving the way we conduct our research, and how we can foster strong working relationships both internally and externally to support our science.

Our expertise

Our core expertise is in biomaterials development and organic bioelectronics, along with high-throughput image analysis. This allows us to microfabricate complex interfaces that deliver multiplexed stimulating/sensing surfaces to biological systems, while allowing us to rapidly assess many output parameters.

We combine bioengineering, solid-state physics, electronic engineering, modelling, surface chemistry, material science and cell biology.

We are a highly interdisciplinary team, but can't do everything: we colloborate with discipline-leading experts in academia, to deliver meaningful insight.
