NTU start-up to focus on biomedical applications

A new start-up company is being established and a venture capitalist has expressed interest to fund the commercialisation of the invention. A multinational biomedical company has also expressed interest to adopt the application of printed electronics for biomedical devices.

The innovation has also attracted international interest with Chang delivering several keynote addresses at major conferences. He has also been recognised by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the world's largest professional association for engineers in the field, as a Distinguished Lecturer for the Printed Electronics.

Moving forward, the four-person multi-disciplinary team—two engineers, a material scientist and a chemist—will be looking to develop both digital and analogue printable circuits for other biomedical applications in sensing and processing, where low-cost smart circuits are required and for smart lighting systems.

This three-year research project is funded jointly by NTU, the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR) Science and Engineering Research Council and the Ministry of Education Singapore.

Chang's invention is another contribution to the University's research efforts in Future Healthcare and Innovation Asia, two of NTU's Five Peaks of Excellence—interdisciplinary research areas in which the university aims to make a global mark in. The other three peaks include Sustainable Earth, New Media and the East-West knowledge hub.
