Funded Research Projects

NeuroEngineering | SIGF - Graduate Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Khaled Kamal Saab
The project aims to alleviate this bottleneck by developing a weak supervision system that optimally deals with time-series data and takes advantage of multiple data modalities.
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.
NeuroDiscovery | SIGF - Graduate Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Darian Hadjiabadi
Dr. Darian Hadjiabadi aims to identify higher-order features of neuronal circuits responsible for seizure initiation and propagation by quantifying mesoscale-network reorganization in genetic models of zebra sh that faithfully recapitulate seizure dynamics in humans.
NeuroDiscovery | Big Idea
Lead Researcher(s): Thomas Clandinin, Miriam B. Goodman
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.
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 | EPFL-Stanford Exchange
Lead Researcher(s): Jacob Suchoski
Virtual environments with haptic (force and tactile) feedback provide a unique opportunity to study human perception and sensory mechanisms using controlled stimuli and behavioral measurements. Virtual reality (VR) allows us to change the properties of physical elements in a virtual world and...
NeuroEngineering | SIGF - Graduate Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Brandon Jay Bhasin
Dr. Brandon Jay Bhasin will use engineering principles from modern control theory, experimental neuroscience and computational neuroscience to significantly advance understanding of how feedback driven plasticity in a tractable neural circuit is orchestrated across multiple synaptic sites and over...
