The Rivnay Group studies organic bioelectronic materials, devices and systems for interfacing between the complex world of biology and traditional electronics. Our interests involve understanding the unique active properties of organic (small molecule and polymeric) materials, including mixed ionic-electronic conduction and actuation and utilizing their strengths for sensing/stimulation in biomedical settings.

Our group is based in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University’s  McCormick School of Engineering. We are physically housed in the Evanston Campus as well as in downtown Chicago, in the Simpson Querrey Institute (SQI).
