The research interest of V.B. is currently focused on the study and implementation of biomaterials, organic materials and nanomaterials and their interaction with neural cells. The application purpose is the development of optical, electronic and optoelectronic biomedical devices and scaffolds, based on natural biopolymers, such as silk fibroin, and multifunctional organic materials (such as organic semiconductors), integrated into biosensors for recording, stimulation and modulation of electrophysiological signals of neuronal cells, for lab-on-a-chip diagnostics, and for therapeutic purposes in the field of neuro-regenerative medicine that targets the functional and homeostatic recovery of neuronal cells.
