Cover Article in Science Translational Medicine

The very comprehensive article that we produced in collaboration with the research teams of Flavia Vitale and John Medaglia was chosen to be the cover article in Science Translational Medicine. Flexible electrode arrays composed of Ti3C2 MXene (MXtrodes) performed epidermal sensing of muscle activity when applied to the scalp, arm, hand, chest, or face of human volunteers. The flexible electrode arrays were compatible with clinical imaging modalities and could be used for electrophysiological recording and neuromodulation during brain surgery in pigs and rats. This is really a powerful excurse into the use of MXenes in electrodes that can replace gold and platinum in medicine. 

Congratulations to our alumni Tyler and Kanit who co-authored this work!
