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 preprint: Congratulations to Jake Trippett and our team of collaborators at Caltech for developing a viral vector engineered for acoustically-targeted gene delivery.
New Grant: G. Harold and Leila Y. Mathers Charitable Foundation will support our work on Acoustically Targeted Chemogenetics (ATAC).
Congratulations to Manwal Harb, and a lab alum Tsvetelina Baryakova for their NSF GRFP fellowships and to Joycelyn Yiu for the NSF GRFP honorable mention!
