bioelectronics & sensor lab

Our laboratory is dedicated to researching bio-electronic convergence technology with the goal of making a positive impact on the world. We have a highly skilled team of engineers specializing in electrical engineering (EE), materials science and engineering (MSE), mechanical engineering (ME), and bioengineering. Our research is focused on both hardware, including materials and devices, and software technologies like artificial intelligence (AI).

Our primary objective is to develop an affordable and user-friendly "high sensitivity diagnosis system" that can be utilized in real-world settings. Currently, we are working diligently to create a smart sample preparation and detection system that can rapidly and accurately diagnose infectious diseases such as COVID-19 at the point of care. In addition, we are developing deep learning technology to enable the AI to assist with diagnostics autonomously.

세상을 조금더 이롭게 하는 바이오-전자 융합기술을 연구하고 있습니다. 공동의 목표를 위해 엔지니어들과 바이오공학자들이 함께 일하고 있습니다. 저희 연구실은 소재/소자 등의 하드웨어 연구 및 AI 등의 소프트웨어 기술을 함께 연구하고 있으며, 이를 통해 현장에서 사용가능한 싸고 간편한 "고민감도 진단 시스템"을 구현하는데 그 목표를 두고 있습니다. 

최근에는 COVID-19과 같은 감염병을 현장에서 쉽고,빠르고 간단하게 진단할수 있는 스마트 필터 시스템과 AI가 스스로 진단 결과를 판별해주는 AI 스마트폰 핵심 기술 개발에 매진하고 있습니다.
