In this course, the fundamentals and applications of micro-and nano-technology-based bioelectronics are introduced. Topics include bioelectricity, biosensor basics, bioelectronic device fabrication, integrated circuit packaging, and in-depth discussions on biopotential electrodes for the recording and stimulation of bioelectricity. Medical device regulations will also be introduced together with safety and ethical issues as critical considerations towards biomedical device translation and commercialization. The course emphasizes the design and analysis methods in developing new bioelectronics. The course project is designed for students to gain experiences and insights in utilizing what’s learned in this course to conduct in-depth critical reviews of recent bioelectronic developments.
