Overview

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
  • Lab on CMOS
  • RF biosensors
as applied in, e.g., hearing instruments, cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, ExG recorders, spinal cord implants, organs on chip, neurostimulators and bioelectronic medicine.

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

Bioelectronics consists of 3 professors (+1 vacancy), 1 technician, 1 secretary and 12 researchers.

Vasiliki Giagka appointed associate editor for Bioelectronic Medicine

Vasiliki Giagka, assistant professor at the Bioelectronics Group at Delft University of Technology, has been invited to the editorial board of Bioelectronic Medicine. The journal asked Giagka for her expertise in fabrication microsystem integration and packaging for neural implants. With her appointment, Giagka is currently one of the youngest associate editors working for the journal.

Wouter Serdijn nieuw lid Wetenschappelijke Raad Medical Delta

Het bestuur van Medical Delta heeft Wouter Serdijn op 7 februari benoemd tot lid van de Wetenschappelijke Raad van Medical Delta. De Wetenschappelijke Raad heeft een belangrijke taak in het realiseren van de doelstelling 'Technologische oplossingen voor duurzame zorg; Van Molecuul tot Toepassing'. De raad telt 26 leden en is sinds eind 2018 actief.

First Microelectronics Synergy Grants

The department of Microelectronics (ME) has just awarded its first Synergy Grants to three research teams. As the name implies, these grants are intended to strengthen the synergy between the research done by the various sections of the ME department. The main authors of the winning research proposals are Akira Endo & Sten Vollebregt, Virgilio Valente & Massimo Mastrangeli and Bori Hunyadi.

Microelectronics at work for sustainable healthcare

Institutions in the Medical Delta (a consortium consisting of TU Delft, Erasmus MC, LUMC, Leiden University and Erasmus University Rotterdam) are starting a broad and unique scientific programme in the field of technological research into innovative solutions for sustainable healthcare. This will involve an investment of five million euros over the next five years.

Health Prototype Grant for Virgilio Valente

Virgilio (Vivo) Valente received a Health Prototype Grant of €10K from the Delft Health Initiative for his proposal in the domains of Lab-on-CMOS and Organs-on-a-Chip.
