题  目:Integrated Bioelectronics : Connecting the Living Tissue and Electronics

时  间:12月19日下午2点

地  点:张江校区微电子学楼389

演讲人:Wentai Liu, PhD

内  容:
Connecting the medical world of living tissue and engineering world of electronics is a fundamental for many approaches to reduce health care costs, improve patient care and health care standards and is yet often not completely explored. This talk will provide the motivation and need for addressing this multidisciplinary field of bioelectronics, describe the challenges and provide directions towards overcoming these challenges. Examples of bioelectronics for medical applications will be presented in the form of neural prosthesis for blindness, spinal cord injury, and brain-machine interface. The recent results from retinal implants in six blind patients will be presented along with the details of the design and operation of the retinal prosthetic device. One of the critical components of the device is the physical interface between electronics and the retinal neurons. The talk will explore the fundamental barriers in realizing efficient bioelectronic interfaces that takes the unique features of the neurons and electronics into advantage. It will emphasize the need for high density devices that can interface with neurons and low noise, low power electronics for acquiring, processing and extracting useful information from the neural signals.

    Professor Wentai Liu received a B.S. degree from National Chiao-Tung University in Taiwan, an M.S. degree from National Taiwan University, and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. In 1983, he joined North Carolina State University, where he held the Alcoa Chair Professorship in the department of electrical and computer engineering. Since 2003, he has been a professor in the electrical engineering department at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he is campus director of the NSF Engineering Research Center on Biomimetic Microelectronic Systems. His research interests include visual prosthesis, implantable electronics, high speed transceiver design (wired and wireless), molecular electronics, microelectronic sensors, timing/clock optimization, on-chip interconnects and computer vision/image processing. Since its early stages, he has been leading the engineering efforts of the retinal prosthesis to restore vision, finally leading to successful preliminary implant tests in blind patients. He has published more than 200 technical papers and is a co-author of Wave Pipelining: Theory and CMOS Implementation (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1994) and Emerging Technologies: Designing Low Power Digital Systems (IEEE Press, 1996). He received an IEEE Outstanding Paper Award and the Alcoa Foundation’s Distinguished Engineering Research Award. He received an Outstanding Alumini Award from National chiao-Tung University (Taiwan). He also holds the appointments of the Chair Professor at National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan as well as the University System of Taiwan Master Lecturer since 2006.
