Theme: Biomedical Science and Engineering

This theme encompasses thrusts in bio-inspired electronics and neural prostheses for hearing and sight; nano– and micro-technologies for understanding and manipulating biological processes at the cellular and molecular level; imaging and computational modeling of disease and neuro-anatomical processes; and communication biophysics, including language, speech, hearing and haptics, including speech synthesis and recognition, sensory communication in all modalities, and the physiology of auditory perception and speech production.

Principal Investigators in this theme are:
Prof. Thomas Heldt, Prof. Elfar Adalsteinsson, Prof. Polina Anikeeva, Prof. Louis Braida, Prof. Anantha Chandrakasan, Prof. Luca Daniel, Prof. Dennis Freeman, Prof. James G. Fujimoto, Prof. Martha Gray, Prof. Jongyoon Han, Prof. Timothy Lu, Prof. Rajeev Ram, Dr. Charlotte Reed, Prof. Rahul Sarpeshkar, Dr. Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel, Dr. Mandayam Srinivasan, Prof. Collin Stultz, Prof. George Verghese, Prof. Joel Voldman
