The NeuroFab: The hub for new ideas in neuro-engineering

NeuroFab Big Idea, Stanford Neurosciences Institute

Our Vision

The NeuroFab is a neuro-technology ‘incubator’ for developing next-gen neural interface platforms, enabling experts in the fields of engineering and nanotechnology to bring new ideas into the neuroscience space in close interaction with leading neuroscientists to achieve truly revolutionary capabilities. The NeuroFab will create a creative and active community of engineers and biologists working together without the technical and biological barriers typically associated with beginning new projects in this area. The NeuroFab will operate a “Hub” facility where new ideas can be rapidly implemented and tested, accelerating the pace of research and eventual translation to the clinic.
