The event featured former BME faculty member and current dean of the Brown University School of Engineering Tejal Desai, as well as several BME faculty members and an industry executive.

Incoming Neurophotonics Center assistant professor Matthias Stangl is looking into the “how” and “why” of neural mechanisms

Neuroscientist Matthias Stangl will be joining the Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Neurophotonics Center (NPC), the Center for Systems Neuroscience, and the Cognitive Neuroimaging Center this January after an already impressive career at UCLA as a postdoctoral scholar aiming to develop a better understanding of the brain’s functionality––not only within a laboratory setting, but in the natural world.


Three ENG Professors Receive NSF Honors

Michael Economo, Hadi Nia, and Alyssa Pierson received Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to advance scientific research in their fields. The researchers receiving the awards are also laying the foundation for the next generation of scientists by using the funding to support students and youth educational programs and to diversify STEM.  A respected program that is highly competitive, NSF CAREER awards mark a significant achievement for early-career scientists.
