"The long-term goal would be to develop viable bionanoelectronic devices that perform functions that are robust enough and complex enough to merit use in real applications; obviously biomedical device use is a prime target."

—Aleksandr Noy, PhD, the Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL; Livermore, California) lead scientist working on a project to develop a platform that uses lipid-coated nanowires to build prototype bionanoelectronic devices, "Hybrid bioelectronic platform to yield better devices, tests."
