BioWings: discovering new materials for biomedical devices

BioWings is a project funded by the European Commission in the Horizon 2020 Future Emerging Technologies (FET) Open Programme.

In the project, we together with our project partners aim to develop new actutating materials for biomedical applications. The goal is to create materials that could replace the piezoceramic tranducers we currently use to generate ultrasound in our acoustofluidic devices. With new materials that can be deposited direcly onto a glass or polymer substrate, the actutator can be integrated into the device, facilitating large-scale production.
