Neural MicroEngineering Laboratory

Research Focus

Our research interests revolve around the development and use of microscale technologies for the study of central nervous system (CNS) growth, regeneration, and physiology. We have particular interests in the relationship between neural architecture and function as well as the effects of the extracellular microenvironment on neural growth and guidance.
