Abstract: Next generation healthcare devices will require embedded electronics to be reshaped and restructured. Moreover, there is also growing need for transient electronics that is bioresorbable and biodegradable. To this end, there is need for flexible, bendable and breathable electronics that is also biocompatible. This talk will focus on the need for novel electronics that is free of hard rigid components, and the landscape around it. I will talk about my research in this domain in building a new class of printable materials to put electronics on unconventional substrates and the printing routes. Printed electronics holds great promise for innovation in design, device architecture and added functionality. The talk will highlighted some key projects completed in the area of printed electronics with application in point-of care and healthteach solutions.
