Research interests

Tobias Naegele received his PhD in Bioelectronics at the University of Cambridge. His PhD focussed on implantable iontophoretic drug delivery devices for brain cancer therapy and resulted in a patented medical device prototype. Tobias is currently a NanoDTC Nano Futures Leadership Prize Fellow which is awarded to exceptional researchers enabling the translation of cutting-edge nanoscience research. His current work focusses on ultra-low frequency electric field generation in electrolytes for medical applications and he conducts an in vivo brain cancer therapy study.  Additionally, Tobias is developing implantable organic electrochemical transistor arrays for peripheral nerve signal recording. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Physics from the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-University of Bonn, a master’s degree in Physics from Imperial College London and a Master of Research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology from the University of Cambridge.

Tobias is Director of Studies in Physics and Fellow of Lucy Cavendish College.
