GuoLabImageRTFThe Laboratory for Biotronic Engineering designs and builds electronic circuits that can be integrated with biological tissue.

The lab, which is part of the Ohio State Neurological Institute, is working to develop these so-called integrated cellular circuits as implantable medical devices for treatment, restoration, and augmentation to body functions. The lab also uses these circuits as biomedical research tools to study biological principles, systems, and functions.
