Toward Hybrid Biomicroelectronic Systems

Biological systems have been shown to be much more efficient at sensing, processing, and communicating data. However, while there are many different tools to monitor these systems there is little work developing systems which form a closed loop between the biology and the electronics to create hybrid biomicroelectronic systems. McFarlane’s goal is to investigate these hybrid systems and develop of means of engineering cellular expression within them.
