Funded Research Projects

NeuroDiscovery | Big Idea
Building a pipeline to explore chemicals synthesized in plants as potential new treatments for neurological disease and as a window into the chemistry of the brain.
NeuroDiscovery | Big Idea
Investigating how the brain develops from infancy to adulthood across species, focusing on how the interplay between structural development, functional development, experience and affect brain computations and ultimately behavior.
NeuroHealth | Big Idea
Lead Researcher(s): Sergiu P. Pasca, Karl Deisseroth
Developing brain organoids – three dimensional brain tissues grown in the lab – to study human brain development, evolution and neuropsychiatric disorders.
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.
NeuroHealth | Big Idea
The Stanford Brain Rejuvenation Project is an initiative by leading aging researchers, neuroscientists, chemists, and engineers to understand the basis of brain aging and rejuvenation and how they relate to neurodegeneration.
NeuroDiscovery | Big Idea
We propose to connect diverse faculty to deepen interdisciplinary understanding of the neural mechanisms supporting addictive choice by combining conceptual, experimental, and clinical approaches that bridge historically disparate fields of inquiry.
NeuroEngineering | Big Idea
Lead Researcher(s): Nicholas Melosh, E.J. Chichilnisky
Our goal is to develop the next generation of neural interfaces that match the resolution and performance of the biological circuitry. We will focus on two signature efforts to spearhead the necessary advances: high-density wire bundles for electrical recording and stimulation, and analog and...
NeuroHealth | Big Idea
Creating a center for neurodegeneration research focusing on brain maintenance and regeneration, and the role of the immune system in these processes.
NeuroEngineering | Big Idea
Lead Researcher(s): Kwabena Boahen, E.J. Chichilnisky
Developing technology to interface with the brain and create intelligent prosthetics.
NeuroDiscovery | Big Idea
Combining a detailed understanding of brain circuits with technology that modulates neural activity to develop improved ways of treating mental health conditions.
