    Traditional electronic devices are rigid, planar, and mechanically static. The combination of traditional electronic materials and responsive polymer substrates is of significant interest to provide opportunities to replace ...
  • Electrical Properties of Thiol-ene-Based Shape Memory Polymers Intended For Flexible Electronics 

    Frewin, Christopher L.; Ecker, Melanie; Joshi-Imre, Alexandra; Kamgue, Jonathan; Waddell, Jeanneane; Danda, Vindhya Reddy; Stiller, Alison M.; Voit, Walter E.; Pancrazio, Joseph J. (MDPI AG, 2019-05-17)
    Thiol-ene/acrylate-based shape memory polymers (SMPs) with tunable mechanical and thermomechanical properties are promising substrate materials for flexible electronics applications. These UV-curable polymer compositions ...
  • The Effect of Microfluidic Geometry on Myoblast Migration 

    Atmaramani, Rahul; Black, Brian J.; Lam, Kevin H.; Sheth, Vinit M.; Pancrazio, Joseph J.; Schmidtke, David W.; Alsmadi, Nesreen Zoghoul
    In vitro systems comprised of wells interconnected by microchannels have emerged as a platform for the study of cell migration or multicellular models. In the present study, we systematically evaluated the effect of ...
  • A Mosquito Inspired Strategy to Implant Microprobes into the Brain 

    Shoffstall, Andrew J.; Srinivasan, Suraj; Willis, Mitchell; Stiller, Allison M.; Ecker, Melanie; Voit, Walter E.; Pancrazio, Joseph J.; Capadona, Jeffrey R. (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-11-05)
    Mosquitos are among the deadliest insects on the planet due to their ability to transmit diseases like malaria through their bite. In order to bite, a mosquito must insert a set of micro-sized needles through the skin to ...
  • Spontaneous and Evoked Activity from Murine Ventral Horn Cultures on Microelectrode Arrays 

    Black, Bryan J.; Atmaramani, Rahul; Pancrazio, Joseph J.; 0000-0001-8276-3690 (Pancrazio, JJ) (Frontiers Media SA, 2018-06-01)
    Motor neurons are the site of action for several neurological disorders and paralytic toxins, with cell bodies located in the ventral horn (VH) of the spinal cord along with interneurons and support cells. Microelectrode ...
