Research: Silk Substrate Bioabsorbable Electronics Forge Ahead

Bioabsorbable electronics engineering research continues to advance with a range of new research results.  A trio of researchers have produced recent results which highlight the possibilities of silk as a substrate.  John Rogers, Fiorenzo Omenetto and David Kaplan have all published in this field. Working independently and cooperatively they are moving this field forward with other researchers.
