Developing innovative focused ultrasound techniques to understand brain function and improve the diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases

Our research centers around three research themes:

  • Focused ultrasound neuromodulation
  • Focused ultrasound brain drug delivery
  • Focused ultrasound-enabled brain liquid biopsies

Our research program aligns very well with the Hope Center’s mission in improving the lives of people living with neurological disorders as techniques developed in our lab can be used to understand fundamental mechanisms and provide treatment of neurological diseases.
