The Bio/interfaces Group at the Integrated Systems Laboratory (Laboratoire des Systmes Intgrs - LSI) studies design technologies for circuits and systems in Biomedical Applications with special focused on Bioelectronics and Biophysics of the nano and bio structured thin molecular films integrated on micro and nano fabricated silicon chips for applications in human diagnostics, translational medicine, and biotechnology

 

NEWS: The group worked hard to organize the IEEE international Conference

 

The research of the group targets the design and fabrication of biosensors on chip and bio-interfaces, with target on DNA and protein arrays. Research involves both the design of novel biosensing devices, intimate integration of highly heterogeneous systems, and development of software tools. The research is specially focused on the development of new bio/CMOS interfaces by also integrating nano- and bio- materials in the electrochemical-sensing surface. The used approach corresponds to a co-design of the different layers (bio, nano, and CMOS frontend) to improve the integration of these highly heterogeneous systems. The research foresees the design of frontend circuits for both electrochemical and imaging sensors, the development of in situ computational units with biosensors, and the software algorithms for data analysis. Specific applications are in the area of implanted/on-line medical devices for continuous monitoring of human metabolism and drugs with also application in intensive care units. Other applications are in the area of full systems (including, nano/bio/sensors, electronics, and fluidics) for continuous monitoring of animal models in translational medicine and of cell cultures in biotechnology.
