Neuroengineering is a new group inside PhysioNet created and lead by Dr. Adam Williamson, a recipient of the ERC Starting Grant 2016.
We combine advances in neuroscience with advances in engineering to reach goals which neither engineering nor neuroscience could reach alone. The group is therefore highly cross-disciplinary and boasts:
- Neuroscientific expertise, particularly focused on in vivo rodent models of neurodegenerative disease;
- Engineering expertise, particularly focused on flexible polymer electronics.
We combine our models of neurodegenerative disease with our flexible polymer devices, specifically:
1) to better understand the fundamental neurodegenerative process;
2) to improve the technology used in the treatment of the disease.
