Summary from second of three neuroscience-engineering workshops

July 22, 2019


Groundbreaking advances in neuroscience are often achieved by teams of investigators spanning multiple disciplines. At Purdue University, we have a unique opportunity to build teams that can tackle major problems in neuroscience with the highest level of innovation by bringing together experts in the life sciences and in engineering.   

Some groups that have coalesced during the first two workshops are focused on using engineering technologies with a strong presence at Purdue to answer major questions related to:

  • addiction
  • cortical circuit decoding
  • gut-brain axis
  • hearing
  • neurodegenerative disease
  • neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g. autism)
  • traumatic brain injury


July 29, 2019, 2 pm - 5 pm, Purdue Memorial Union East/West Faculty Lounge

Teams of life scientists and engineers will present the main question each team is trying to answer and the detailed research plans. Outcome: Development of research plans to be considered for internal funding. 

*Networking Reception and Hors D’ Oeuvre will begin at 3 pm.
