报告题目:DissolvableTattoo Electronicsfor Biomedicine（生物医学可伸缩可吸收电子产品）
Recent advances in electronics enable powerful biomedical devices that have greatly reduced therapeutic risks by monitoring vital signals and providing means of treatment. Implantable devices can help us better understand the behavior and effects of various diseases. However, an additional procedure is required to remove the device after an initial implantation. Conventional electronics today form on the planar surfaces of brittle wafer substrates and are not compatible with the complex topology of body tissues. Therefore, stretchable and absorbable electronics are the two missing links in the design process of implantable monitors and in-vivo therapeutics. This talk presents the challenges, mechanics, and design strategies, behind a potential medical device that (a) integrates with human physiology, and (b) dissolves completely after its effective operation. Implanted devices will provide a much better understanding of organ functions and offer more time efficient treatments for serious diseases such as heart failure.
Biography: Dr. Huanyu Cheng was appointed an Assistant Professor of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM) and Materials Research Institute (MRI) at The Pennsylvania State University in Aug 2015, and was awarded the Dorothy Quiggle Career Development Professor in Sep 2015. He earned a Ph.D. and a Master’s degree fromNorthwesternUniversityin 2015 and 2011 respectively, and a Bachelor’s degree fromTsinghuaUniversity(China) in 2010. Prior to joiningPennState, Dr. Cheng also worked as a Visiting Research Fellow with Prof. John A. Rogers at theUniversityofIllinoisat Urbana-Champaign on stretchable and transient electronics. Throughout Dr. Cheng’s research career, he has worked on mechanics design and advanced manufacturing of biologically inspired electronics with applications in robotics, biomedicine, and energy. Dr. Cheng has co-authored over 60 peer-reviewed publications, and his work has been recognized through the reception of awards including Forbes 30 Under 302017 inScience, election to the Global Young Academy in 2016, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) International Student Research Fellowship, Best Paper Award in ASME Applied Mechanics Division Student Paper Competition, International Institute for Nanotechnology Outstanding Researcher Award, Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad, and many others. He also serves as associate editor forComputers in Biology and Medicine, editorial board member forInformatics in Medicine Unlocked, and reviewer for 40 international journals.
