We are very excited to share that our latest work is on the cover of Science Translational Medicine.
Flexible, easy to fabricate MXene-based bioelectronic interfaces for high-resolution recording and stimulation in different areas of the body.. and they are also MRI and CT compatible!
Congratulations to the first author Dr. Nicki Driscoll and the fantastic team of co-authors at Penn and Drexel.
The full paper can be accessed here.
Read the full interview and profile of the Vitale Lab here.
Read here our new paper entitled “Time Evolution of the Skin–Electrode Interface Impedance under Different Skin Treatments”.
In this work we investigate the effect of different treatments on the electrode-skin interfacial impedance and how it changes over time. Congratulations to the first author Dr. Brendan Murphy.
Congratulations Dr. Murphy for passing his PhD thesis defense with flying colors!
We are very excited to share that our lab has received a second R01 from the NINDS. Together with Co-PI Dr. John Medaglia and the Cognew Lab at Drexel University, we will be working to develop and validate novel dry EEG electrodes based on MXene materials. This project is also in collaboration with Dr. Kate Davis (Penn Neurology), Dr. Yury Gogotsi (Drexel Nanomaterials Institute), and Dr. Joel Stein (Penn Radiology).
We are excited to share the news that we have just received a new R01 from the NIH! The goal of the project is to develop and validate a novel technology for intraparenchymal gene, drug, and therapeutic delivery.
This work is in collaboration with Dr. Tim Lucas (Penn Neurosurgery), Dr. Gonzales-Alegre (Penn Neurology & CHoP Center for Cellular and Molecular Therapeutics), Dr. Beverly Davidson (CHoP Center for Cellular and Molecular Therapeutics), and Dr. Joel Stein (Penn Radiology).
Dr. Nicki Driscoll is the recipient of the Sol Pollack Award for the best Bioengineering PhD thesis.
This prestigious award acknowledges the outstanding work and scientific contributions from Nicki’s PhD work. Congratulations Nicki, we are all very proud of your accomplishments!
Congratulations to Brendan Murphy on successfully passing his thesis proposal
Congratulations to the first co-authors Nicki Driscoll and Richard Rosch from the Dani Bassett Lab for the acceptance of their paper “Multimodal in vivo recording using transparent graphene microelectrodes illuminates spatiotemporal seizure dynamics at the microscale” in Communications Biology. This study proposes a new framework to combine microECoG and calcium imaging datasets collected through transparent microelectrode arrays to identify microscale dynamics of epilepsy in mouse models. Here the link to the online version of the paper.
Yuzhang Chen (Neuroscience), Sneha Shankar, and George Menztelopoulos (Bioengineering) join the lab for their PhD studies. Welcome!
Congratulations to Dr. Nicki Driscoll on successfully defending her thesis!
Read about our novel wearable MXene sensors that do not require any conductive gel and can map muscle activation at high-resolution and sensitivity than conventional gelled electrodes. Congratulations Brendan Murphy for the amazing work!
How can we leverage nanotechnology tools and methods in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic? Dr. Vitale joins other nanotechnology experts for a topical perspective article just published in ACS Nano.
Our paper entitled “Fabrication of Ti3C2 MXene microelectrode arrays for in vivo neural recording” is now online in the Journal of Visualized Experiments. Congratulations to Nicki Driscoll and all the co-authors! Here you can watch the video and download the paper describing the Ti3C2 MXene synthesis and microelectrode array fabrication.
