  • Laure Kayser, Assistant Professor

    Assistant Professor
    University of Delaware
    310 Dupont Hall
    Newark, DE 19716


    (b. 1986) B.Sc., 2007 University of Strasbourg, France; M.Sc. 2009 University of Strasbourg, France; Ph.D., 2016 McGill University, Montreal, Canada; Postdoctoral Fellow, 2016—2019, University of California San Diego.

    Current Research:

    ​According to the World Health Organization, nearly one sixth of the world’s population suffers from neurological disorders. These disorders of the nervous system include structural disorders (e.g., spinal cord injury), degeneration (e.g., Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases), infections (e.g., meningitis), functional disorders (e.g., epilepsy), and vascular disorders (e.g., stroke).

    The study and/or repair of the nervous system requires electronic materials than can interact with the human body, whether with direct contact—for neuroscience—or indirect—for haptics and robotics. While basic research in soft electronics has significantly advanced in the last 5-10 years, these efforts have not yet been translated to benefit the society.

    Researchers in the Kayser lab aim at designing, synthesizing, and understanding the next generation of soft organic electronic materials to study or repair the nervous system. We are approaching challenges as an interdisciplinary research team, working at the intersection of organometallic chemistry, polymer synthesis, and materials and device engineering.
