Funded Research Projects

NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Tal Iram
Dr. Iram will use brain intrinsic and systemic regulators of aging, in an attempt to accelerate maturation of human-derived brain organoids. This has the potential to produce the first ever aged human brain 3D cultures and identify factors which accelerate brain aging.
NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Miguel Garcia
Dr. Miguel Garcia believes that identifying the mechanism of myelin wrapping is important in understanding neural development and is a critical first step towards creating much needed therapeutic approaches to stimulate remyelination in patients with demyelinating diseases.
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.
NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Jessica Nowicki
By performing a molecular and neural network analysis across behaviorally divergent pair bonding species, Dr. Jessica Nowicki will use the power of comparative analysis to reveal core mechanisms that regulate pair bonding.
NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Daniel Bear
Dr. Daniel Bear propose to augment state-of-the-art neural networks with two biologically-inspired properties: the ability to represent the physical world as it changes over time and the ability to learn from self-created signals rather than explicit human instruction.
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
The NeuroPlant Initiative aims to leverage a botanical armamentarium to manipulate the brain — by 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.
