    Collapse Overview
    We engineer technologies to study brain-body physiology and to inform new therapeutic approaches for bioelectronic medicine. We fuse approaches in synthetic biology, nanotechnology, device engineering, and systems neuroscience to develop genetically-targeted tools to target, map, readout, and/or control neural circuits while minimizing damage to tissue.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
