Welcome to the Bettinger Group at Carnegie Mellon University! We are broadly interested in the applying principles of polymer synthesis, materials science, and microfabrication for use in a wide range of biomedical applications including advanced medical devices, regenerative medicine, bio-interfaces, and drug delivery. Members of the Bettinger Group work at the interface of several disciplines including polymeric biomaterials, electrochemistry, and applied physics to achieve these goals. One representative example of these efforts is our recent work in edible electronics. The goal of this project is to design and engineer sophisticated ingestible electronics that are composed of non-toxic materials and potentially useful in a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
Ik Soo publishes a study on the use of melanin pigments as charge-injection materials for use in tissue stimulating electrodes. This article is part of an Emerging Investigator issue for the Journal of Materials Chemistry …
In collaboration with Venkat Viswanathan (MechE) and Jay Whitacre (MSE), Young Jo publishes a paper that uses electrochemical fingerprinting to shed light on the structure of natural melanin pigments.
Maddie completed her time in the Bettinger Group earning a CIT Honors Thesis and Masters in BME along the way. Congrats and best wishes!
The Bettinger Group wishes everyone a happy and healthy 2016!
