Congratulations to Michael Bolus for receiving the J. Norman and Rosalyn Wells Fellowship

Michael Bolus, PhD candidate, was awarded the J. Norman and Rosalyn Wells Fellowship for graduate students in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Emory and Georgia Tech. This fellowship is awarded to doctoral students who are conducting meritorious research in the areas of neuroengineering or brain tumors, in recognition of his proposal entitled “Closed-loop Optogenetic Control of Thalamic State.”

Way to go, Michael!

Stanley and Rozell Labs Jointly Awarded New $1.6M CRCNS award

Advances in modern technology have made it possible to precisely measure and manipulate neurons and neural circuits to read and write brain activity at the same time, enabling communication with the brain in the fast timescale on which it operates. The Rozell and Stanley labs are doing just that together in our project, called “Closed-Loop Computational Neuroscience for Causally Dissecting Circuits.” This project just received a $1.6 million, five-year award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH)/National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and stroke (NINDS) through a long-standing and innovative NSF/NIH partnership in the Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS) program.
