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.
The Bettinger Group recently visited beautiful Lake Erie, PA for an end-of-the-summer celebration with BBQ and volleyball.
The Bettinger Group receives an NSF grant from the BMAT program to study next-generation materials for brain-machine interfaces. Thank you for your support!
Aditya Balasubranian and Congcong Zhu are among the first PhD recipients from the Bettinger Group!
