Abstract

Real-life problems are tending to become more complex as a result of expanding population, high level of demand at all levels and the advancement of technology which became integrated into almost all aspects of life. Such complex problems can only be tackled by employing tools in multiples disciplines. The combination of disciplines in such research studies is dictated by the nature of the problem. Here we present our experience as a case study in which we conducted our research following an interdisciplinary research approach involving two disciplines of electrical engineering and biochemistry. We discuss the uniqueness of joint venture between the two disciplines, the obstacles faced and how they are tackled in addition to giving some recommendations that we believe can act as guidelines to scientists who are considering those two disciplines in their future research. Our observations and recommendations go in line with other findings, but we additionally provide real cases and examples and more detailed advice, which can be more efficient and support previous finding in a practical way.
