Center for Electromicrobiology
Interesting research into electroactive bacteria, and the microstructures they build for electron transport. Lots of interesting avenues from bimimicry of the materials for new macro scale materials, to engineered geobacter for sensors

Why can't they make good bone conduction headphones with this tech? Hrm, wonder if this would be applicable for throat mic transducers too...
