In vitro bioelectronics combines the realms of electronics and in vitro biological systems with the aim of developing improved bioassays for drug screening or for fundamental studies. As in the broader field of bioelectronics, progress in this area has been mainly driven by advances in materials science and device engineering as well as by the development of more predictive biological models. Materials that promote communication with cells can result in novel device configurations that can transduce and even amplify biological signals, bridging the gap between biology and measurements towards predictive models that can be reliably used for high-throughput high-content studies.The merging of synthetic biology and bioengineering with electronics allows for precise control over the biological model offering unprecedented opportunities to probe biology at multiple length scales, as well as to use biotechnology approaches to exploit biomolecules for applications such as energy harvesting and environmental/healthcare diagnostics. This symposium will encompass advances in multifunctional electronic materials, for interfacing biology, as well as for satisfying the technological demands of electronics industry such as compatibility with large area processes and miniaturisation. The scope of this symposium will go beyond traditional in vitro cell-based models and include cell-free biological models made via synthetic and bioinspired routes including cell membranes, vesicles and subcellular components.
Joint Sessions are being considered with SB06-Bioelectronic Materials and Devices for In Vitro Systems.
