The lab welcomes back Dr. Lowry Curley, who after a postdoc in Antwerp, Belgium, will be leading an effort funded by the NSF I-Corps program to explore the commercialization potential of the lab's "nerve-on-a-chip" technology. We're glad to have you back, Lowry!

Congratulations to the lab for receiving pilot funding from the US Army Medical Research Command to initiate the project, "A Functional High Throughput Assay of Myelination In Vitro."  We will be working with our collaborators, Dr. Ben Hall and Dr. Ken Eilertsen to develop a micro-engineered model of myelinated neural tracts from human induced pluripotent stem cells.  This model will aid the study of myelin and nerve conduction disorders, such as multiple sclerosis.

Developing microscale technologies for studying central nervous system physiology and regeneration.
Introduction
Our aim is to study how tissue architectural and microenvironmental factors affect neural axon growth and physiology in order to develop multifaceted, translational treatment strategies for neurological disorders. To investigate these phenomena, we are developing microscale technologies that make use of synthetic chemistry, materials science, micro-optoelectronics, microfabrication, optogenetics, computational modeling, and neurobiology.
