Welcome to the Silicon Bioelectronics (SiBio) Laboratory

The Silicon Bioelectronics (SiBio) Laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo pursues research at the intersection of biotechnology and semiconductors. Our work leverages the one trillion dollar semiconductor manufacturing industry to develop complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) biochips that translate the chemical world of biology to the digital world. By combining standard CMOS chips, containing custom analog/mixed-signal integrated circuits, with novel or non-traditional structures, materials, and devices, we are developing biochips for a wide range of life-science and bio-diagnostic applications.

The Silicon Bioelectronics (SiBio) Laboratory is affiliated with the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) and the Centre for Bioengineering and Biotechnology.
