Lisa Schoebel, PhD student in our Institute, supervised by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini and carrying out a project in the framework of the DFG funded Collaborative Research Center SFB 1270/2 ELAINE – Electrically Active Implants has started a research internship at the Shriram Center for Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering, Stanford University, USA. During this research stay, under supervision of Prof. Zhenan Bao, Lisa is investigating the production of soft bioelectronics using electrically conductive hydrogels with tissue-adhesive properties. The resulting devices will be characterized in terms of their stimulation performance depending on composition and geometrical features such as dimensions and thickness. This research stay is part of the doctoral training program within the DFG-funded ELAINE project. We congratulate Lisa on having secure funding from ELAINE and the international visiting scholarship of the FAU Faculty of Engineering, which supports excellent young female scientists.
