The Center for Neural Engineering & Neurotechnology, the newest DIBS Center, will focus 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.
Warren 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.
