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, functional bio-interfaces, and drug delivery. Members of the Bettinger Group work at the interface of several disciplines including biomaterials, cell biology, and organic electronics to achieve these goals.
Postdoctoral fellow Young Jo Kim of publishes work on edible batteries in Journal of Materials Chemistry in collaboration with Jay Whitacre. These biocompatible batteries could power edible electronic devices.
Prof. Bettinger’s talk on Biomaterials-Based Microsystems and Electronics has been selected by Google Solve for X team to be featured on their new site: www.solveforx.com
The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Technology Alliance (PITA) awards a grant to the Bettinger Group to support work on biodegradable electronics.
The Bettinger Group seeking a post-doctoral fellow in the area of cell-biomaterial interactions for tissue-engineered constructs. Please contact Prof. Bettinger if you are interested and have a background in polymeric biomaterials or tissue engineering.
The Bettinger and Matyjaszewski research groups have received a 4-year $1.6 million dollar grant to design next-generation peripheral neural interfaces by applying novel materials synthesis strategies.
