Guosong Hong's research aims to bridge materials science and neuroscience, and blur the distinction between the living and non-living worlds by developing novel neuroengineering tools to interrogate and manipulate the brain in a minimally invasive way. Specifically, the Hong lab is currently developing ultrasound, near-infrared and microwave-based in-vivo neural interfaces with minimal invasiveness and targeted neural specificity.

Guosong received his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Stanford University in 2014. His Ph.D. research focused on the development of a new fluorescence imaging method in the second near-infrared window (NIR-II window, 1,000-1,700 nm) to afford deep-tissue penetration in the brain and other biological tissues. During his postdoctoral training at Harvard University, Guosong developed tissue-like mesh electronics neural probes to interrogate the brain and the retina with chronic stability, and is a recipient of the American Heart Association (AHA) Postdoctoral Fellowship and the NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00). Guosong joined the Stanford faculty in September 2018, and is an assistant professor of Materials Science and Engineering, and the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute.
