Cyborg - The Hybrid CellChip
The aim of this research is to develop a revolutionary technique for (1) studying complex biological systems and for (2) utilizing hybrid components as in vivo sensors and drug delivery systems. This challenging research is a quantum leap in the 'Lab on a Chip' field, and provides new technological pathways in engineering and biotechnology. Combining sensing capabilities with intelligent chemical and electrical feedback in vivo, sets the stage for smart implanted devices. For this multidisciplinary long term project we recruit students and post docs with background in electrical engineering, biology, chemistry and medicine. This research is generously supported by the Israeli Ministry of Science, Technology and Space.
