The Biosensors and Bioelectronics Centre is working to create the next generation of bioelectronic devices and to support the national and worldwide development of the field. Bioelectronics seeks to exploit biology in conjunction with electronics encompassing, for example, biological fuel cells, bionics and biomaterials for information processing, information storage, electronic components and actuators. A key aspect is the interface between biological materials and micro- and nano-electronics. Work at the Centre today spans a full range of core technologies including: bioimaging and drug delivery; bio-inspired and bio-specific ligands; biointerfaces; biomaterials; biomolecular electronics; biosensors; chemical transducers; pre-clinical trials; printing and microfabrication; micro-actuators; nanomaterials and nanostructures; tissue scaffolds; smart materials and nanomaterials; therapeutics; and user interfaces and electronic design. Key strategic targets for our biosensor work include fully-printed electrochemical sensing systems, optical biosensors, wearable sensors, mobile health, lateral-flow devices and the creation of new biomaterials and smart tissue scaffolds

Currently the group focus is in the following scientific areas:
