The limited available treatments (e.g., radiation, chemotherapy) for glioblastoma (GBM) can lead to swelling in the brain that causes elevated intracranial pressure (ICP), the timing of which is unpredictable; this results in the patient presenting to the emergency room with headaches, vomiting, or...

Sensorineural hearing loss is an increasingly prevalent condition that causes disability to over a third of US adults aged over 65. We are developing a breakthrough device to restore high-frequency hearing that preserves residual hearing through a reversible and minimally invasive approach.

Recurrent dizziness attacks are a debilitating condition for 10% of the population during their lifetime, and can lead to a complete inability to function, and to multiple hospital admissions and investigations chasing many potential diagnoses. This project aims to address the unmet need for means...
NeuroEngineering | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Rui Lin
Multicellular organisms consist of numerous cell types with specialized biological functions. To understand such complex biological systems, genetic access to each cell type is needed for functional analysis and manipulations. Most current cell-type targeting strategies rely on germline...
NeuroEngineering | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Isaac Kauvar
Our drive to seek new information is powerful. As children, we play — experimenting to establish the relationship between our actions and the environment. As adults, we consume media — searching for news and entertainment. As scientists, we explore — carrying out complicated experiments that probe...

NeuroEngineering | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Alex Williams
Neural circuits can exhibit remarkable stability (e.g., when supporting long-term memory) as well as flexibility (e.g., when supporting rapid learning). While neuroscientists have begun to individually characterize these two aspects of neural computation, developing more complete scientific...
NeuroEngineering | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Claire McLellan
Communication between cells in the nervous system regulates the senses, memory, and information processing. Using electrical and biochemical sensors, such as patch clamps, voltage-sensitive dyes, and calcium-sensitive dyes, scientists have mapped with extraordinary detail the interactions of the...
NeuroEngineering | Seed Grant
We believe our research has the potential of generating transformative results for both neuroscience research and neurological applications, also offering strategies to manipulate key intracellular pathways to prevent gliosis in therapeutic neural implants.
