Funded Research Projects

NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Rabindra Shivnaraine
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are proteins that exist within the cell membrane and act to transfer the information encoded within neurotransmitters and drugs into cell responses. GPCRs exist throughout the body in several systems including the nervous system.
NeuroHealth | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Laura Marquardt
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a debilitating condition that affects young adults between the ages of 16 and 30, which leads to lifelong medical and financial burdens. SCI still results in a decreased quality-of-life and lower life expectancy for patients. This is due in part to the lack of a...
NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Boxuan Zhao
Our ability to remember makes us human, and is essential for acquiring new skills and integrating previous experiences into future decision-making. While it is known that long-term memory (LTM) formation requires new gene expression, we lack a detailed and comprehensive understanding of which genes...
NeuroHealth | EPFL-Stanford Exchange
Lead Researcher(s): Łukasz Kidziński
Human movement results from the coordination of muscles, tendons, joints, and other physiological elements. While children learn to walk, run, climb, and jump in their first years of life and most of us can navigate complex environments -- like a crowded street or moving subway -- without...
NeuroHealth | Research Accelerator
This project is developing non-invasive transcranial magnetic stimulation as a way to modulate human neural circuits to treat psychiatric disease.
NeuroHealth | Research Accelerator
StrokeCog is focused on cognitive problems after stroke. The team leads a study aimed at identifying if neuroinflammation plays an important role in the development of post-stroke cognitive decline.
NeuroEngineering | Research Accelerator
Our research focuses on the twin goals of investigating fundamental principles of human neuroscience and translating laboratory insights into clinically viable assistive devices for people with paralysis.
NeuroHealth | Seed Grant
This interdisciplinary collaboration across psychiatry and radiology will develop and validate a new method to study the mechanisms underlying ketamine’s biochemical action and its effects on dissociation and treatment effectiveness.
NeuroEngineering | Seed Grant
Lead Researcher(s): Ron Dror, Michael Lin
A computational biophysicist and a protein engineer will team up to improve voltage-sensing fluorescent proteins, proteins that can report electrical activity by changing their production of light. The goal is to visualize the electrical activity in neurons in real time.
NeuroDiscovery | Seed Grant
Lead Researcher(s): Nirao Shah, Justin Du Bois
We are interested in elucidating the multiple roles that sex hormones play in development of the nervous system and in regulating brain functions that influence gender identity, puberty, and reproduction.
