What we do
The Rivnay Group engineers organic bioelectronic materials, devices and systems for interfacing between the complex world of biology and traditional optoelectronics.
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 interests generally fall into the following categories, with applications ranging from probes for neural engineering to in vitro platforms and regenerative scaffolds.

If you are interested learning more about the group, what we do, or would like to enquire about joining the group, please contact Prof. Rivnay by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are not seeking new post-doctoral researchers or graduate students at this time.
Our labs and offices are located on both Northwestern’s Evanston Campus, as well as on the downtown campus at the Simpson Querrey Institute in the Lurie Building. We look forward to moving into the newly constructed Simpson Querrey Building in Summer 2019!
