We develop next generation multimodal (electrical-optical and chemical) neural interfaces.


Maysam Chamanzar, is the William D. and Nancy W. Strecker Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, where he is running an interdisciplinary research program at the interface of neural engineering, nanotechnology, photonics and neuroscience to design next generation multimodal neural interfaces. He is also a faculty member of the Molecular Biophysics and Structural Biology (MBSB) program, the Biomedical Engineering Department, the Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute and the Center for the Neural basis of Cognition (CNBC). His lab has been working on designing novel multimodal neural interfaces to understand the neural basis of brain function and dysfunction. His lab has been developing implantable neural interfaces for recording and stimulation of brain. Additionally, his lab has pioneered a novel method of in situ light guiding and steering using ultrasound waves for non-invasive imaging.
