Developing a protein-engineered nerve implant that mimics the biochemical and mechanical cues of native tissue in order to enhance the potential for neural regeneration following injury.
NeuroEngineering | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Dante Muratore
Dr. Dante Muratore's goal is to design the next generation of neural interfaces that allow single-cell resolution when communicating with the nervous system. To achieve this, he has conceived a new way of reading information from the neural system.

Project's stimulation method may provide a powerful tool to reduce disability after a stroke, and the wearable form factor allows users to receive intensive therapy during their normal daily routine
NeuroEngineering | SIGF - Graduate Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Yi Liu
Yi Lui's project aims to use deep brain microstimulation (DBMS), which causes even less brain damage and has higher spatial resolution than DBS, for memory recovery.
NeuroEngineering | Big Idea
Lead Researcher(s): Alice Ting, Liqun Luo, Stephen Quake
Creating new tools to help neuroscientists bridge the study of genes and proteins operating in the brain to the study of brain circuits and systems, which could lead to a deeper understanding of brain function and disease.
NeuroEngineering | Research Accelerator
The goal of the project is to create a transformative sensor technology to measure complex forms of chemical communication in the living brain, in real time.
NeuroEngineering | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Sergey Stavisky
A top priority for people with paralysis is reach and grasp ability. Technologies such as robotic arm prostheses or electrically stimulating paralyzed muscles can meet this need. Existing methods rely on the remaining muscles, are unintuitive and require laborious sequences of simple commands....
