Center for Neural Engineering & Neurotechnology

Dr. Grill and Qi Wang
Dr. Grill organizes the Center’s lecture series. Here, Qi Wang, PhD, Columbia University, discusses, “Reading & Writing the Neural Code: Initial Steps toward Enhancing Perception & Cognition Using Brain-machine Interfaces.”

The Center for Neural Engineering & Neurotechnology, the newest DIBS Center, focuses on using engineering techniques to understand the mechanisms of and develop advanced approaches to electrical stimulation of the nervous system to restore function to individuals with neurological impairment or injury.


GrillWarren Grill, Edmund T. Pratt Jr. Professor of Biomedical Engineering in Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering, will lead the center. He also holds appointments in the Duke School of Medicine, in Neurobiology and Neurosurgery, and in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Pratt. Dr. Grill also serves on the DIBS Faculty Steering Committee.
