I have been mentoring and working together with a highly interdisciplinary research team including electrical engineers, electrochemists, material scientists, and clinicians, devoted to developing bioelectronic devices for fundamental and applied biomedical studies. Our research thrusts include fundamental materials (organic semiconducting polymers & hydrogels) and their electrochemistry innovations as well as novel soft devices and system-level applications toward personalized healthcare and precision medicine. This includes various wearable/point-of-care/implantable organic biosensors (such as smart bandages) that perform real-time health monitoring, disease screening, pre- and post- clinical assessments, and soft organic drug delivery devices for precise therapeutics, especially for delivering ionic drugs for treating cancers.
