Bio-Nano Telecommunications investigating how molecular communications can be applied for biomedical application including modelling communication systems at the nanoscale that occurs between neurons in the cortex, modelling the neural communication process through the nervous system, as well as modelling virus propagation through the circulatory system.
This research focused group is classified into 4 distinct levels, where varied research activities are carried out. These include:
Modelling & Simulation of Virtual Organ
- Computer simulated virtual organs actively deployed in a data centre.
- Enzyme propagation within the human body
- Signalling codes sent from Gut to Brain
- Virtual Modelling of neural Tissue – How exosomes travel through the tissue for treatment.
Bio-Nano Engineering of Cells to Control their Communication & Computing
- Molecular communications of cells
- Synthetic biology of engineered cells and logic gate computing
- Bacterial computing and communication on a chip ( interface between Bio-Nano to electronic based devices)
Micro-Devices Interfacing to Bio-Nano Cells
- Implantable self-powered externally controllable circuit for stimulating neurons in the brain using light.
- Nano sensor that can be used for sensing specific types of molecules
Smart Textile Layered connections to Body Cells
- The research strand focuses on the layered connections from cells in the body and their capability to communicate and talk to devices on the body or built into smart garments/etextiles.
- Intelligent smart wearable garment for the detection and sensing of output molecules from bacteria.
