    Goldsmiths' Lecture Room 1

    Prof John Rogers, Simpson/Querrey Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Medicine at Northwestern University, USA

    Biology is soft, curvilinear and transient; conventional semiconductor technologies are hard, planar and everlasting. Development of electronic and optoelectronic systems that eliminate this profound mismatch in properties will establish foundations for devices that can intimately integrate with the body, to provided unique, important modes of operation with relevance in biomedical research and clinical healthcare. Over the last decade, a convergence of new concepts in materials science, electrical engineering and advanced manufacturing has led to the emergence of diverse, novel classes of 'biocompatible' electronic platforms. This talk describes the key ideas, with examples ranging from wireless, skin-like electronic 'tattoos' for continuous monitoring of physiological health, to bioresorbable nerve stimulators for accelerated neuroregeneration.

    The Social Committee is delighted to announce this term's quiz! The quizmaster is James Devine-Stoneman. Sign up as an individual or as a team for £2 per person. Individuals will be placed into a team prior to the start of the quiz. 

    During the quiz there will also be a game where you can guess the amount of candy in a jar! Aoife McCaul, a part III student, will be the protector of the candy jar. All proceeds go to support Education Project Africa, so it's good for your karma!
