Implantables Workshop 2024

Join us for the second NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST) Implantables Workshop on May 8, 2024, from noon to 4 p.m.

The focus of this VIRTUAL multi-phased engineering workshop is to determine future strategies for advancing the transition from mobile and wearable sensor systems to implantable and injectable devices to guide NSF ERCs to enable next-generation technologies. Specifically, the workshop will define the state-of-the-art, necessary innovations, and future challenges facing the research and development for applications in understanding human physiology, pathophysiology, and behavior. The workshop will cover all relevant topics including electroceuticals, flexible sensors and novel electrode materials, biophotonic recording and stimulation, magnetic actuation, ultra-low-power circuits, bioreactors, and ultrasonic energy transfer for battery-free operation.

Register NOW to get your Zoom link! Local attendees in the Raleigh area can meet in NC State Monteith Research Center (MRC) Room 454 to attend in a group setting. Pizza Lunch and refreshments will be provided starting at 11:30 am.

All the NSF ERCs are invited for this workshop.
