Materials that are compatible with human tissue. Electronics that are part of us. Silicone technology that is flexible. Circuits that can stretch and move with our bodies. These concepts that once seemed unimaginable are the basis of the scientific innovations coming to life in the hands and labs of our next speaker.
Join President Joseph E. Aoun for a conversation with John A. Rogers, a materials scientist and entrepreneur at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. They will discuss electronic systems that can adapt to our bodies, integrate inside our tissues, diagnose diseases, deliver drugs and simply dissolve when their work is done.
