Bozhi Tian

Bozhi Tian is a leader in the emerging field of bioelectronics—merging semiconductor technology and living tissue. He has created “intelligent” artificially grown tissue, such as synthetic blood vessels that can monitor the pH of liquid flowing through, as well as tiny wires to modulate brain signals and “scales” and “bones” that could be integrated into implants, among others.

His many honors include the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship, the National Institutes of Health Director’s New Innovator Award, and the National Science Foundation Faculty Early Development CAREER Award.
