The mission of the Section Bioelectronics is to provide technology for the successful monitoring, diagnosis and treatment of cortical, neural, cardiac and muscular disorders by means of electroceuticals. To this end, we investigate and design active implantable biomedical microsystems employing:
  • Biosignal conditioning/detection
  • Neuroprosthetics
  • Transcutaneous and intra-body wireless communication
  • Wireless power transfer and management
  • Energy harvesting
  • Bioinspired electronics
  • Implantable electronics
  • Flexible implants
  • Microsystem integration
as applied in, e.g., hearing instruments, cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, ExG recorders, spinal cord implants, neurostimulators and bioelectronic medicine.

The Bioelectronics group participates in the Electrical Engineering BSc curriculum and two MSc tracks: MSc Biomedical Engineering, MSc Microelectronics.

Bioelectronics consists of 2 professors (+1 vacancy), 1 visiting professor, 1 technician, 1 secretary and 10 researchers.
