    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 our multi-institutional research effort.

    One of the first large 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, generalized anxiety disorder and PTSD. The program also includes a sub-focus on closed-loop stimulation approaches to address chronic pain. The SUBNETS 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, psychiatrists and cognitive scientists.
