Bioengineering Seminar: Michael Moore (Seminars/Workshops)
"Neural Micro-Engineering for Modeling Neurological Disorders and Therapies"
Michael Moore, Ph.D.
Neurological disorders collectively make up the leading causes of disability in the U.S. and worldwide, and most of them have few treatment options. This presentation will discuss the development of microengineering technologies such as microscale tissue engineering, novel nanomaterials, microfabrication, digital light projection microcopy, and optical modes of electrophysiological stimulation and recording and their applications in modeling neural repair, neuropathy, and drug discovery.
