Our aim within the Center for Implantable Devices is to enable multi-pathology treatment through physically distributed networks of nanoscale wireless sensors and actuators. From it''s inception, the center has focused on the broader problem of interfacing implantable microelectronics with biological systems.

Novel technologies and applications come through participation in the NSF funded Network for Computational Nanotechnology Nano-Engineered Electronic Device Simulation Node (NCN NEEDS) at Purdue, and the Goodman-Campbell Brain and Spine Neurosurgical Group in Indianapolis. With other researchers at Purdue, the Jackson Laboratory, and further afield in packaging, electromagnetics, low-power digital circuits, and biosensors, we design custom application specific integrated circuits and combine them with MEMS transducers, RF hardware, and advanced packaging techniques to develop system-level solutions to clinical problems in epilepsy, Parkinson's, alcoholism, glaucoma, and chronic neural interfaces. Those solutions are then translated into human clinical use, and simultaneously and subsequently into private industry"
