Funded Research Projects

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.
NeuroDiscovery | Big Idea
Lead Researcher(s): Steven Chu, Liqun Luo, Thomas Sudhof
The goal is to forge an inter-disciplinary collaboration between physicists, biologists, chemists, and translational medical scientists by inventing new ways of visualizing the brain, from individual molecules to neuronal circuits to entire brain regions, from a normally functioning neuron to a...
NeuroHealth | Big Idea
Breaches barriers in our understanding of stroke to develop therapies and improve stroke recovery.
NeuroEngineering | Big Idea
Lead Researcher(s): Nicholas Melosh
Creating an incubator for next-generation neural interface platforms.
NeuroHealth | Seed Grant
To combat age related macular degeneration, we propose to identify genes that increase survival of the light sensing nerves of the eye.
NeuroEngineering | Seed Grant
Lead Researcher(s): Jun Ding, Nicholas Melosh
We will engineer next generation bundled microwires deep brain stimulation using microwires that are thinner than human hair. We will use a small LED display to deliver patterned stimulation by ‘playing a video’ on the display chip, where each pixel is connected to a microwire.
NeuroHealth | EPFL-Stanford Exchange
Lead Researcher(s): Richard E. Grewelle
Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease second only to malaria in its human health and economic impact on tropical nations. For over a century, large efforts to control the disease in effected communities have been met with limited success because elimination requires both treatment of humans and...

Although you’re aware of the light that you see, light also affects us in ways that you might not appreciate. These so called “non-image forming” (NIF) pathways were recently discovered, they start in the human eye before projecting to over a dozen brain regions. They modulate aspects of human...
