The goal of this exciting multidisciplinary institutional training program, based in the Schools of Medicine and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, is to train predoctoral engineering students and physician postdoctoral fellows in Neuroengineering and its clinical translation. Trainees will be mentored in a collaborative environment to become fluent in cutting-edge technologies at the forefront of Neuroengineering.
This program is designed to meet individual objectives and encompasses a broad range of interests such as devices, neurostimulation, machine learning, algorithm development, cloud computing, nanotechnology, natural language processing and materials science. Trainees will innovate new therapies for human disease and gain a thorough understanding of the clinical, regulatory, and developmental environments necessary to safely bring new technologies to patients. The program’s core is a group of collaborative, multidisciplinary faculty mentors in engineering and the clinical neurosciences. We develop future academic researchers who have expertise in both engineering and clinical neuroscience, and who can communicate effectively across these domains.
