Research in the lab focuses on a variety of neural engineering and neuroscience topics. In general, we seek to develop interfaces with the peripheral nervous system to restore function and to examine systems-level neurophysiology. Most of our projects involve investigating neural control over autonomic organs and developing neural interfaces. We have active collaborations with researchers and clinicians within Electrical Engineering, Urology, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Surgery, Molecular & Integrative Physiology, Neurosurgery, Radiology, and Biomedical Engineering, and we are developing collaborations with other groups within and outside the University of Michigan.
