Organic Bioelectronics at NU

The Rivnay group studies organic bioelectronic materials, devices, and systems for interfacing between the complex world of biological systems, and the outside world. Our interests are in understanding the unique active properties of organic (small molecule and polymeric) materials, including mixed ionic-electronic conduction, actuation and utilizing their stengths 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) in the Lurie building.
