Stanford Webinar - Wireless Bioelectronics: The Use of Tiny Devices to Treat Diseases

Traditionally, the main method of modulating biological activities has been chemical, i.e. drug therapies. While other methods exist, chemical methods have dominated how disease are treated. Join Dr. Ada Poon as she discusses the use of electrical and optical approaches, such as bioelectronics devices, to modulate biological and neural activities, including their benefits, challenges, and progress.

You will learn:

•The engineering and experimental challenges to realizing electromagnetic energy transfer devices that exploit near-field interactions with biological tissue to wirelessly power tiny devices.
•The benefits of optical and electrical methods of modulating biological activity to treat diseases.
•The history, development, and progress of miniaturized devices, and high resolution and mechanically flexible neural interfaces for both research and clinical systems.
