Event description


Between 1995-2002, Arizona State University was actively pioneering neural engineering research and training. In addition to key advances in the field, the period produced an extraordinary cohort of faculty and trainees who have proceeded to establish accomplished careers in academia, medicine, and private industry concerns. The new Harrington Department of Biomedical Engineering fused disciplines from neuroscience to device design and manufacture. The mission of this meeting is to explore that time period at ASU to understand what crucial elements and practices resulted in such a lasting impact on the field. After examining the neural engineering research program at ASU around 2000, we will then explore the subsequent careers of the people who were at ASU at the time. ASU's Biomedical Engineering program, now called The School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, is currently enjoying a renewed florescence in rehabilitation and neural engineering in the Fulton Schools of Engineering. The program is again drawing leading scientists and top trainees. In the closing session, we will examine the current state of the field and try to generate recommendations for enhancing the research and training environment here at ASU and elsewhere.

Please join us for a special gathering of ASU Neural Engineering professionals on October 10, 2017 from 8am-5pm in the Ventana Ballroom, Memorial Union Building, Arizona State University Tempe Campus. Followed by a casual celebration with live entertainment.
