      Collapse Overview
      Effective management of large research collaborations requires time and expertise that typically exceed the capacities of the lead investigators involved. As Co-director, with Dr. Edward Chang, of the DARPA-funded SUBNETS program, I provide administrative and scientific leadership to the collaborative group with the aim of optimizing scientific and clinical outcomes and leveraging the program’s resources to facilitate new project development, scientific training, and activities that strengthen the University and affiliated scientific communities.

      One of the first programs funded under the White House Brain Initiative, SUBNETS is a $31M, 5-year project aimed at developing new device-based technology to address widespread mood disorders such as major depressive disorder, general anxiety disorder and PTSD; the program also has a sub-focus on closed-loop stimulation approaches to address chronic pain. The program team includes 16 investigators from seven institutions, including UCSF, UC Berkeley and LLNL, and brings together the work of surgeons, neurophysiologists, device engineers, statistical modeling specialists and cognitive behaviorists.
