Medtronic chair in neuroengineering Laboratory of Neural Engineering (LNE)

The laboratory of Neuroengineering  is a multidisciplinary environment promoting cross-fertilization among various expertise. We bring materials science, engineering, life science, and medicine together by the convergence of physicists, engineers, neuroscientists, and ophthalmologists cooperating to accomplish innovative projects. Our mission is the development of application-driven solutions based on compliant, minimally invasive, and replaceable neuroprosthetic devices. Ultimately, we aim at translating our research findings into clinical practice.
