Harvard Scientists Create Cyborg Tissue That Merges The Biologic And Electronic

Harvard Scientists Create Cyborg Tissue That Merges The Biologic And Electronic | cyberculture | Scoop.it

Scientists at Harvard have created a type of “cyborg” tissue for the first time by embedding a three-dimensional network of functional, biocompatible, nanoscale wires into engineered human tissues.

 

... a system for creating nanoscale “scaffolds” that can be seeded with cells that grow into tissue.

 

"... With this technology, for the first time, we can work at the same scale as the unit of biological system without interrupting it. Ultimately, this is about merging tissue with electronics in a way that it becomes difficult to determine where the tissue ends and the electronics begin.”

 

Beginning with a two-dimensional substrate, researchers laid out a mesh of organic polymer around nanoscale wires, which serve as the critical sensing elements.

 

Nanoscale electrodes, which connect the nanowire elements, were then built within the mesh to enable nanowire transistors to measure the activity in cells without damaging them.

 

Once completed, the substrate was dissolved, leaving researchers with a netlike sponge, or a mesh, that can be folded or rolled into a host of three-dimensional shapes.
