Translational Biomimetic Bioelectronics Lab
Medical Devices for Tomorrow
Who We Are
Seymour Lab at UTHealth
The Translational Biomimetic Bioelectronics Lab focuses on the advancement of neurotechnology for improved treatment of neurological disease. Many questions remain about how to improve the efficacy of implantable devices currently being used to treat conditions such as epilepsy, stroke, and ALS. Our team is excited to contribute significant solutions to the challenges of today’s medical devices. These devices require novel materials and fabrication methods to address the risks for brain damage, infection, and poor outcomes. Our mission is to invent and publish our solutions so that these ideas are used in future implantable bioelectronics. Our approach specializes in nanofabrication techniques of sensor and stimulation arrays, and advanced packaging of integrated circuits.
Our lab is part of two large neuroengineering initiatives. The Texas Institute for Restorative Neurotechnologies (TIRN) which is co-directed by Nitin Tandon, M.D., a leading neurosurgeon in the treatment of epilepsy and decoding of neural language networks. TIRN is a unique combination of neurosurgery, neurology, bioinformatics, and technology development at UT Health. We are also part of the exciting neuroenginnering community at Rice University.
We are located at UT Health in the Texas Medical Center, and in the BRC at Rice University. Much of our development occurs in the Rice clean room.
We are currently hiring post-docs, engineering staff, and a lab manager.
