Laboratory for Noninvasive Neuroengineering

We are developing technologies for noninvasive control and monitoring of the brain. In our work, we combine synthetic biology, molecular engineering, and strategies for enhanced gene and drug delivery 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.

New paper: a peer-reviewed publication is now in press - a protocol for high-precision FUS-BBBO. Congrats to Manwal Harb for his first co-authorship on a paper.

 

New grant: We have received a grant from The Welch foundation to develop site-specific therapeutics for brain disorders.

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.
