Welcome to the Vitale Lab at the University of Pennsylvania!

The goal of our lab is to create novel technologies to study, monitor and treat neurological and neuromuscular disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson's, nerve injury, and chronic pain. 
Our research focuses on engineering the electrochemical, mechanical and optical properties of nanostructured materials and integrating them in soft, multimodal bioelectronic interfaces that can seamlessly monitor and modulate the nervous system at high spatio-temporal resolution and at multiple scales, from individual cells to large-scale circuits.

We are a multidisciplinary group bringing together engineers, physicists, materials scientists, neuroscientists, and clinicians with the ultimate goal of translating our research findings into clinical care.
