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 research groups of Kris Matyjaszewski, Michael Bockstaller, and the Bettinger Group publish two articles on the use of tailored synthesis of star block copolymers (Matyjaszewski & Bettinger) and polymer structures to control the formation …
A DARPA-funded effort to design the next generation of materials for use in disappearing airplanes is underway! We are excited for the opportunity to work on this problem. Thank you, DARPA!
Understanding thermal transport is an important issue in electronics including organic materials. This paper demonstrates that the interfacial resistance dictates the overall thermal transport in model organic semiconducting systems. The full paper can be found …
Friends and family of Bettinger Group members joined Prof B for a BBQ at his house to celebrate the end of the school year, the graduating students, and the return of esteemed alums.
