Rice neuroengineers and collaborators have created wireless technology to remotely activate brain circuits.
Neuroengineer Jacob Robinson discussed research at U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s fourth annual health care summit at Rice.
A wireless neurostimulator a little bigger than a grain of rice can be put in place alongside blood vessels to treat neurological diseases and chronic pain.
The lensless Bio-FlatScope is a small, inexpensive camera to monitor biological activity that can’t be captured by conventional instruments. The device could eventually be used to look for signs of cancer or sepsis or become a valuable endoscopy tool.
Conrad’s newest piece installed at BRC; opening reception Saturday
Robotics expert Marcia O’Malley, associate dean for research and innovation in Rice’s Brown School of Engineering, co-authored a retrospective in this week’s Science Robotics about the past decade's advances in medical robotics.
Rice University bioengineer Jerzy Szablowski wins a prestigious Packard Fellowship to pursue noninvasive brain research.
Rice engineers are developing a noninvasive device to understand how the brain disposes of metabolic waste during sleep.
Researchers identify redundant neural networks in jellyfish-like, freshwater hydra. The work is a step toward modeling how internal states and external stimuli shape the behavior of an organism with a highly dynamic neural architecture.

A $1 million Keck Foundation grant will support work by Jacob Robinson to understand neural pathways.
Rice engineers' wireless implants now allow for multiple stimulators to be programmed and magnetically powered from a single transmitter.
HOUSTON – (April 6, 2021) – Neurosurgery's history of cutting diseases out of the brain is morphing into a future in which implanting technology into the brain may help restore function, movement, cognition and memory after patients suffer strokes, spinal cord injuries and other neurological disorders. Rice University and Houston Methodist have forged a partnership to launch the Center for Translational Neural Prosthetics and Interfaces, a collaboration that brings together scientists, clinicians, engineers and surgeons to solve clinical problems with neurorobotics.
Wireless linkage of brains may soon go to human testing with $8 million for preclinical demonstrations.
Researchers from Rice University and MD Anderson Cancer Center have created a microscope that uses artificial intelligence to quickly and inexpensively image large tissue sections at high resolution with minimal preparation. If clinically validated, the DeepDOF microscope could allow surgeons to inspect tumor margins within minutes.
