The Neuroengineering Materials Group works with new materials for wireless communication with the brain and nervous system. Our research focuses on understanding and optimizing materials for controlled, electronic signaling to and from the brain. Our ultimate goal is to contribute to neurotechnologies that are minimally invasive, and possibly implanted with no surgical intervention. To this end, we also work in in material-to-tissue interface engineering to control biological responses and provide tissue targeting. Our multidisciplinary group works in materials science & physics, biomaterials, nanotechnology, electrical engineering, and neurobiology.
Our group is part of the School of Computation, Information, and Technology (CIT) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
