Prof. Bruce C. Wheeler (UC San Diego, Bioengineering, link), who is the pioneer of micro electrode array technology, visited us and gave a inspirational talk on current trends in biomedical engineering field. Prof. Wheeler served as the President of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) in 2012 - 2013.
Prof. Andreas Hierlemann (ETH Zurich, link), who is one of the world leading researchers in MEA technology, visited us while he was attending MicroTAS 2015 in Korea. He spend one day with NEL students sharing his recent results on CMOS MEA system.
Prof. Luke Lee (UC Berkeley, link), who is one of the world leading researchers in nanobiotechnology, visited us while he was attending a conference near KAIST. He spend a few hours with NEL students discussing about the important role of technology in neurobiology.
Dr. Urs Frey (RIKEN, link), who is the world-leading CMOS MEA researcher, visited us and gave a seminar on recent CMOS-based MEA technology. NEL members had a chance to present their own research interests to Dr. Frey.
Prof. Mikhail Shapiro (Caltech, link), who is a leading researcher in molecular imaging and neurotechnology, had a short laboratory tour with Prof. Nam Yoon-Sung, while he was visiting Seoul for a conference. He also gave a seminar on 'Molecular Engineering for Non-invasive Imaging of Biological Function' in KAIST Institute of NanoCentury.
