Fang and Koppes Receive $2.2M NIH Award Leading to State-of-the-Art Electrophysiological Capabilities

ECE Assistant Professor Hui Fang (PI) and ChE Assistant Professor Ryan Koppes (co-PI), in collaboration with UCLA and Boston Children’s Hospital, received a $2.2M NIH grant for “Novel transparent, ultra-soft neuroelectrode arrays based on nanomeshing conventional electrode materials.” In this study, they propose to prove a novel electrode concept, nanomeshing conventional electrode materials, can lead to state-of-the-art electrophysiological capabilities while allowing at the same time, optical and chronic-bio- compatibilities. Besides enabling new hypothesis-driven neuroscience studies from overcoming major barriers of integrating in-vivo electrical recordings with optical approaches, the proposed research will also provide unique opportunities for next-generation therapeutic interventions via sustainable neural prosthetics.
