The Stanley lab is happy to welcome visiting graduate student Linlin (Mia ) Lu from Peking University as part of the GT /PKU partnership.
Originally from China, Linlin Lu (Mia ), is a third year postgraduate student in the PKU-GT-Emory joint BME program. She received her bachelor’s degree of engineering in the department of Biomedical Engineering in Peking University in 2014 and continued her graduate studies in the laboratory of Prof. Duan Xiaojie at PKU. In the Duan lab, she focuses on developing flexible, soft and MRI compatible probes for chronic neural interface. As part of the Stanley lab she hopes to test the chronic recording capability and MRI compatibility of the probe in the whisker pathway, and try to combine the probe with other techniques, such as optogenetics and two-photon imaging, to develop better tools for use in neural science.
