Assistant Professor Lin Du, now with Ohio State University and NeuroTech Institute, advances biomedical frontiers through implantable MEMS and DNA nanotechnology. Her work bridges engineering and medicine, aiming to develop systems that enhance health and quality of life. Her current innovation involves an implantable tactile system, utilizing brain-machine interfaces to restore mobility for individuals with paralysis. After receiving her Ph.D. in Electrical and Systems Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, Lin embarked on postdoctoral work at UC Berkeley, concentrating on cost-effective sepsis diagnostics by integrating DNA techniques with semiconductor processes. Her significant research is published in acclaimed journals like Microsystems & Nanoengineering and Nature Photonics. Her distinctions include the Mulroney Fellowship, MIT EECS Rising Stars, and the HS Chau Women in Enterprising Science Fellowship. Recently named a 2023 Foresight Fellow, Lin has also demonstrated a strong commitment to diversity in STEM through her influential role in 'Advancing Women in Engineering.
