RLE Research Groups

High-Throughput Neurotechnology Group

The High-Throughput Neurotechnology Groups aims to advance our understanding of the function and complexity of the central nervous system, and engineer it to solve big challenges in medicine. By focusing on our strengths in engineering and physical sciences, we develop novel drug screening technologies, high-throughput imaging and cell manipulation techniques, tissue patterning systems, and bioinformatics techniques to rapidly study and control the behavior and regeneration of neurons under biological conditions. We employ a state-of-the-art multidisciplinary approach including microfluidics, microrobotics, ultrafast optics/microscopy, quantum physics, tissue engineering/printing, stem cell reprogramming, genetics, and RNA/polymer biochemistry.

Investigation:

High-Throughput Single-Cell Manipulation in Brain Tissue
High-Throughput Tissue Micro-Printing Technology
Vertebrate Manipulation Technology and Hyperdimensional Phenotyping
Neuronal Regeneration after Precise In Vivo Laser Nanosurgery
Inducing Synaptic Connections in Microfluidic Chips
Generating Transplantable Human Neurons by Reprogramming Skin Cells to Stem Cells

The group is led by Professor Mehmet F. Yanik
