“Utilizing organic mixed conductors for bioelectronic devices”
Speaker: Scott T. Keene, Ph.D. candidate, Materials Science and Engineering, Stanford University
Abstract: coming soon
Scott Keene is completing his Ph.D. research and is a member of Prof. Alberto Salleo’s group in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Stanford University. His research focuses on the use of organic mixed conductors for bioelectronic applications, including wearable biosensors and neuromorphic devices. Scott’s research interests also include the fundamental properties of electrochemical gating in mixed conducting materials. During his Ph.D. studies, he published 16 peer-reviewed papers, including articles in Science, Nature Materials, and Advanced Materials. Scott received the Stanford Graduate Fellowship and the Short-term Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. He received his undergraduate degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Washington in 2015.
“Driving innovation through advanced sensors and wearable technology”
Speaker: Oxana Pantchenko, Ph.D, Engineering Program Manager, Medical Devices, NextFlex
Flexible hybrid electronics are delivering a new generation of medical devices that are conformal, flexible and lightweight. Our goal is to improve the patient experience through the design and development of new medical devices for continuous monitoring in healthcare and wellness that are low cost, fast to market, and reliable. Several case studies will be presented that demonstrate the use of flexible hybrid electronics technology for continuous patient monitoring, including electronic skin patches, and sensors for point-of-care diagnostics.
Oxana Pantchenko is the Engineering Program Manager for Medical Devices at NextFlex in San Jose, CA. NextFlex, America’s Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) Manufacturing Institute, is a consortium of companies, academic institutions, non-profits, and state, local, and federal governments with a shared goal of advancing U.S. manufacturing of FHE. She earned her Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Dr. Pantchenko’s experience includes work at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Devices and Radiological Health, San Jose State University, Foothill Community College and various medical device start-ups.
