Electroceuticals

Contact: Vasiliki Giagka

Electroceuticals are the electronic counterparts of pharmaceuticals. They are tiny electronic devices that interact with the electrophysiology of the human body. They can be wearable, implantable or injectable and ultimately aim for closed loop operation to tailor the applied therapy to the patient-specific and time-variant therapeutic needs.

Major challenges to be addressed are electrical stimulation, electrophysiological recording, transcutaneous wireless communication, low-power or zero-power operation and microsystem fabrication using advanced biocompatible materials, such as graphene, in combination with reliable CMOS IC technology.
