RLE Research Groups

Analog Circuits and Biological Systems Group

The RLE Analog Circuits and Biological Systems group focuses on creating (1) novel molecular and cellular circuits for systems and synthetic biology; (2) implantable medical devices such as cochlear implants and brain-machine interfaces; (3) ultra-energy-efficient and ultra-low-power systems; and, (4) biological and bio-inspired supercomputers. The common theme in all of our their work is analog circuit design. The group’s interdisciplinary research analyzes, designs, instruments and repairs biological systems through engineering . It also creates novel engineering architectures through inspiration from biology. Thus, it is based on a two-way flow between biology and engineering as revealed on the group’s website.

The group is led by Professor Rahul Sarpeshkar
