SynBio Forum with George Malliaras and Karen Polizzi

This term’s SynBio Forum will focus on biosensors and their applications; from neuroscience to pharmaceuticals. We have two very exciting speakers who will discuss the use of organic electronic materials and genetically encoded sensors in bioscience research. As usual, the talks will be followed by a dinner buffet and drinks reception. Be sure to reserve your spot!

Electronics on the Brain

George Malliaras, Prince Philip Professor of Technology, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge

My research is in bioelectronics, specifically the application of organic electronic materials to interfacing with the brain, aiming to understand how the brain works and to develop new tools for the diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases. Among my group’s recent achievements are (i) the development of ultra-conformable microelectrode arrays for recording corticograms, recently used in the clinic to record single neuron activity from the surface of the brain of epileptic patients, (ii) the first use of a transistor in recording brain activity, resulting in record-high signal-to-noise ratio, and (iii) the development of an electrophoretic device that stops epileptiform activity in a brain slice model through localized drug delivery. I am also interested in applying what we learn from the brain to develop neuromorphic devices and systems.
