Monica Lin, Ph.D. 2017

Bioengineering
Advisor: Prof. Maharbiz
Research Interests: Medical devices

BIOGRAPHY
Monica Lin is PhD student in the UC Berkeley - UCSF Graduate Program in Bioengineering, with a research focus on medical devices. She is interested in developing sensors to address unmet clinical needs, and currently works in Dr. Michel Maharbiz's lab designing and building an electronic bandage to monitor pressure ulcers.

Monica received her B.S. in Chemical Biology with a Bioengineering minor from UC Berkeley.

Electronic Bandage for Wound Healing [BPN714]
Electrical stimulation has been shown to play a large role in the wound healing process by affecting angiogenesis, cell migration, antibacterial effects, etc. However, current electronic therapies have been limited to devices that can be safely and easily removed from patients because of the toxicity of the degradation products from the electrical components . Therefore, we propose a novel flexible "electronic bandage" that can be safely absorbed by the body. These bioresorbable systems will provide high-resolution, in-body mapping of the impedance field in the wound area in a minimally invasive way, providing significant knowledge and fundamental understanding of cell recovery in a number of medical procedures. These devices will also provide physicians with a way to monitor and eventually stimulate internal wound healing.
