伦敦博士联盟Curciform系列讲座之——“柔性可溶解传感器”,嘉宾:程寰宇博士

沙龙嘉宾:程寰宇(美国宾州州立大学任助理教授)

讲座主题:柔性可溶解传感器 
Dissolvable TattooElectronics for Biomedicine

内容摘要:可植入人体内的电子器件不仅可以提供重要生理信号的检测,同时还可以为包括心脏功能失常等在内的严重疾病提供及时治疗。然而在第一次植入电子器件后,我们需要再进行第二次手术来取出相关器件。与此同时,传统的电子器件需要在脆弱的硅片上进行平面加工制造,而这是和人体的复杂曲面不兼容的。为了解决这两个重要问题,我们设计并制造了具有柔性的医学器件。这一柔性医学器件不仅可以穿戴在人体复杂的皮肤表面,而且在完成功能后完全溶解在人体内。为了实现这一目标,我们首先发展出了一套可以在人体内溶解的功能材料体系。结合我们研究小组之前的柔性电子技术,这一新的医学器件可以被穿戴在人体内部的重要器官上,在它们设定的医学应用时间内稳定运行,而在此之后可以完全溶解在人体内。

ABSTRACT: Recent advances in electronics enable powerful biomedical devices that have greatly reduced therapeutic risks by monitoring vital signals and providing means of treatment.  Implantable devices can help us better understand the behavior and effects of various diseases.  However, an additional procedure is required to remove the device after an initial implantation.  Conventional electronics today form on the planar surfaces of brittle wafer substrates and are not compatible with the complex topology of body tissues.  Therefore, stretchable and absorbable electronics are the two missing links in the design process of implantable monitors and in-vivo therapeutics.  This talk presents the challenges, mechanics, and design strategies, behind a potential medical device that (a) integrates with human physiology, and (b) dissolves completely after its effective operation.  Implanted devices will provide a much better understanding of organ functions and offer more time efficient treatments for serious diseases such as heart failure.
