Enabling Futuristic Bioelectronics With Bioprinting: Beyond the Obvious

by Shweta Agarwala

Modern electronic devices and sensors have dramatically transformed medicine over the past several decades. Certain material properties, however, have limited the potential of these electronics, namely their rigidity. The promise of biomaterial-based electronic devices, though, are opening up new opportunities for improved sensing and longer-term monitoring, enabled by enhanced mechanical durability and compliance to the tissues in question.
