Educational Background

  • Sc.D., Materials Science and Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1983

Research Interests

  • Dr. Anthony Guiseppi-Elie is a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and TEES Professor at Texas A&M University. His primary research interests are in engineered bioanalytical microsystems in the service of human health and medicine and include:

    Bioelectronics and Organic Electronics: The synthesis and characterization of chemically and biologically responsive materials such as CNT-Enzyme supramolecular conjugates, CNT-conductive electroactive polymer (CEP) composites and their integration with CMOS technology such as in Enzyme-FETS and chemoresistors used in multi-element arrays such as electronic tongue and electronic nose.

    Biochips and Biofuel Cells: The development of implantable biochips for physiologic status monitoring. Research aims to integrate biotransducers, mixed signal electronics, low power devices and wireless communications into clinically relevant systems for monitoring during trauma and surgery and for monitoring in the intensive care unit (ICU).

    Nano and Microfabrication and BioMEMS: Design and fabrication of interdigitated arrays, microdisc arrays and arrays of arrays for biological detection. Integration of arrays into biomedical diagnostic devices. The use of under potential electrodeposition to control the nanotopography, catalytic properties and interfacial impedance properties of metal/tissue interfaces.

    Science, Technology, Innovation & Public Policy: Academic entrepreneurship and enterprise formation. Particular interest in the organizational structure, policies and practices to engender innovation. The science and art of innovation.

    Transdisciplinary research is along a continuum from fundamental investigations of length-scale influences of biomaterials properties through preclinical testing of diagnostic devices in piglets. Collaborations are with the Tripler Army Medical Research Center (Honolulu) and the Medical University of South Carolina.
