LASSP faculty play role in founding Cornell Neurotech

The Cornell Neurotech collaboration was born from humble beginnings when several faculty members began meeting informally in the Physical Sciences Building to discuss their work and share research opportunities regarding neuroscience and technology.

The group had been encouraged by Paul McEuen, co-director of the Kavli Institute at Cornell—which not only provided nominal funding for the monthly meetings, but since 2011 had also been pushing a much larger national research initiative to substantially invest in studies of the brain.
