Dr. Abidian directs the laboratory Advanced Regenerative Biomaterials and Therapeutics for Neural Interfaces, which investigates development of innovative organic bioelectronics for neural interface applications. His lab utilizes interdisciplinary approaches for development of low-cost and high-throughput neural interface technologies for regenerative neural engineering, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disorders and diseases with an emphasis on translational neural engineering. Current efforts in his lab is focused on neural recording and stimulation, neural tissue regeneration, drug delivery to brain tumor, and neurochemical sensing.
Dr Abidian has received many awards and honors including Materials Research Society Silver Award and Plenary Speaker in US-Turkey Advanced Study Institute on Healthcare Challenges, sponsored by the NSF. His research has been featured several times on the cover of frontier journals including Advanced Materials and Advanced Functional Materials, and Advanced Healthcare Materials. Dr. Abidian has organized several symposiums in Materials Research Society and served as the guest editor in journals of Advanced Materials and Materials Chemistry. His outstanding research has been funded by the NIH, and NSF.
