The Neural Engineering Center is a Georgia Tech Interdisciplinary Research Center co-directed by Lena H. Ting, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Emory Univeristy and Georgia Tech and Garrett B. Stanley, Professor and Biomedical Engineering and Faculty Fellow. Robert J. Butera, Interim Associate Dean for Research & Innovation in the Georgia Tech College of Engineering, Professor, Biomedical Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering and one of the founding directors of the Neural Engineering Center, continues to serve on our executive committee.
The mission of the Neural Engineering Center is to develop cutting-edge science and technology for measuring, understanding, modifying, and stimulating neural activity. There is a critical need for novel collaborative integration between researchers developing interfacing technologies and those advancing our scientific understanding of brain and nervous system function. Applications of these technologies span advancing understanding of neural function to translational methods that improve clinical outcomes.
In addition to coordinating large research and training grants, the Neural Engineering Center
