The combination of biomedical science with printed electronics holds great promise. At the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol), an internationally recognized leader in biomedical sciences and biosensors, a team of researchers and post-graduate students are collaborating on the latest advances in the field.
Prof. Tony Killard, professor of Biomedical Sciences, Department of Applied Sciences at UWE Bristol and adjunct professor at the Biomedical Diagnostics Institute at Dublin City University, is researching ways to combine the biomedical and printed electronics fields, developing printed biosensors that are drawing the attention of the respective industries.
“Our main area of interest is electrochemical sensors and their application to diagnostics,” Prof. Killard said. “We saw the massive potential that printed electronics could have on this area of technology and the levels of integration that could be achieved. We saw a
