We would like to provide some helpful information for prospective students interested in research at the BioRobotics Lab. Due to a high volume of interest in our lab, it may not be possible to get an individual response from one of our principal investigators or current graduate students. Please read the appropriate page below FIRST, before sending an e-mail, and try to be as specific as possible with the name of the project you’re interested in working on. Thanks!
Last week marked the end of an intensive 10 week summer research program for three of our summer students. Alex and Magena were participants in the CSNE Research Experience for Undergraduates, and Matt was a participant in the CSNE Research Experience for Veterans. All three did a fantastic job of delivering a short presentation and then presenting posters. Thanks for all of your hard work this summer and good luck!
We are proud to announce that two of our summer researchers, Matt Ehlert and Alex Franke, will be presenting their research at the CSNE Summer Program Research Symposium. Their poster session is 1-3pm at CSNE (see flyer for more details). Congrats to both of them on their fabulous research!
When VICE Motherboard visited us last month to talk about surgical hacking, they also took some time to learn about the lab’s work on neural security and brain hacking. Several articles are now available:

This research is by Tamara Bonaci, Katherine Pratt, and Howard Chizeck.
