This project focuses on the challenges faced by traditional detection and diagnostic technologies including shelf-life, signal amplification and sensitivity, continuous monitoring and device lifetime, detection range, and matrix compatibility. Further, it provides the enabling technology to expand functionality in computation and biochemical response for mixed-mode sensing devices.

The general objective is to develop the fundamental technologies required for cell-CMOS interfacing by demonstrating a proof-of-concept, mixed-mode sensing device that can sense and transduce signals from a complex matrix. Specific objectives:

  1. Engineer and validate an arsenic-sensing circuit into Bacillus megaterium.
  2. Fabricate the microfluidics necessary for the retention of biological sensors to the IC
  3. Develop the CMOSIC technology, integrate it with the biological sensors and demonstrate the proof-of-concept for a mixed-mode sensing device
  4. Expand the capability of CMOSIC and cell-based circuits to enable communication from silicon to the cell, enabling programmability of cell-based circuits from ICs.
