Laboratory for Noninvasive Neuroengineering

We are developing technologies for noninvasive control and monitoring of the brain. In our work, we combine molecular engineering and strategies for enhanced delivery of genetic material and therapeutics into the central nervous system. Our goals are to understand neural circuit function and treat brain disorders with fewer side effects.

Keywords: gene delivery, protein engineering, neuromodulation, viral vector engineering, ultrasound

For examples, see our current research.








Invited Talk at SBMT

Speaking at the Neuroengineering-Ultrasound session at the  Society of Brain Mapping and 

Therapeutics Congress in LA - looks like it will be a great meeting!

Invited presentation at Helmholtz Pioneer Campus.

Helmholtz Pioneer Campus to talk at a symposium on engineering biomedical breakthroughs.

Received NARSAD Young Investigator grant

Brain and Behavior Research Foundation (BBRF) award will focus on making gene delivery to the brain safer, cheaper, and more effective.


ATAC in the news.

Our work on noninvasive neuromodulation was featured in the news. Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News published an informative article on DREADDs, which also featured ATAC technology.
