USC Biomedical Microsystems Laboratory

The Biomedical Microsystems Laboratory at USC focuses on developing novel micro- and nanotechnologies for biomedical applications. In particular, we are interested in the integration of multiple modalities (e.g. electrical, mechanical, and chemical) in miniaturized devices measuring no more than a few millimeters for use in fundamental scientific research, biomedical diagnostics, and therapy.

Polymer MEMS

We apply micromachining methods to polymers such as Parylene for biomedical applications.

Sensor Technologies

Small, biocompatible sensors enable real-time monitoring of conditions inside the body.

Neural Interfaces

We have multiple research projects focused on recording and stimulation of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
