Congratulations to Brendan Murphy on successfully passing his thesis proposal
Congratulations to the first co-authors Nicki Driscoll and Richard Rosch from the Dani Bassett Lab for the acceptance of their paper “Multimodal in vivo recording using transparent graphene microelectrodes illuminates spatiotemporal seizure dynamics at the microscale” in Communications Biology. This study proposes a new framework to combine microECoG and calcium imaging datasets collected through transparent microelectrode arrays to identify microscale dynamics of epilepsy in mouse models. Here the link to the online version of the paper.
Yuzhang Chen (Neuroscience), Sneha Shankar, and George Menztelopoulos (Bioengineering) join the lab for their PhD studies. Welcome!
Congratulations to Dr. Nicki Driscoll on successfully defending her thesis!
Read about our novel wearable MXene sensors that do not require any conductive gel and can map muscle activation at high-resolution and sensitivity than conventional gelled electrodes. Congratulations Brendan Murphy for the amazing work!
How can we leverage nanotechnology tools and methods in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic? Dr. Vitale joins other nanotechnology experts for a topical perspective article just published in ACS Nano.
Our paper entitled “Fabrication of Ti3C2 MXene microelectrode arrays for in vivo neural recording” is now online in the Journal of Visualized Experiments. Congratulations to Nicki Driscoll and all the co-authors! Here you can watch the video and download the paper describing the Ti3C2 MXene synthesis and microelectrode array fabrication.
Hear Dr. Vitale talking about novel materials for neurolectronic interfaces on CrowdScience, a radio show and a podcast from the BBC World Service.

Dr. Vitale has received the Linda Pechenik Montague Investigator Award.
This prestigious award was created by the philanthropist Linda Pechenik Montague to recognize the most promising research faculty at the Perelman School of Medicine. In addition to the prestigious recognition, the award will provide $100,000 to support the research work of Dr. Vitale.
Thanks to Linda Pechenik Montague and to the Perelman School of Medicine for this honor.
