How do we successfully interface different materials with the body?

Research seminar with Alexander Boys, Chemical Engineering & Biotechnology Research Fellow, University of Cambridge

Bioelectronic implantable technologies hold the key to reaching and treating many hard-to-access and transient diseases. However, interfacing these devices and structures with the body is challenging due to our innate immune response to foreign materials. Here, we will examine methods that the body uses to interface highly dissimilar materials to develop a series of design criteria for implant integration. Then, we will discuss the application of these principles for the long-term integration of bioelectronic monitoring devices. These advances hold the potential to drive the next generation of implantable technologies for creating seamless interfaces with the body.
