Congrats, Dr. Shi!

We are delighted to share that  Linli has successfully defend her Ph.D Thesis in July. Congrats, Dr. Shi. For your fearless taking on new directions, motived scientific curiosity, critical thinking and creativity, and generous support of others! We are so proud working with you.

Congrats, Nan and Linli for new progress made on photoacoutic interface for stimulation

Our work on biocompatible photoacoustic film for neuromodulation is published in ACS Nano recently. This is a collaboration between our group and Prof. David Kaplan’s group at Tufts. Congrats, Nan! We recently reviewed 4 different platforms we developed together with Dr. Ji-Xin Cheng’s group based on high precision photoacoustic neuromodulation in Neurophotonics. Congrats, Linli and […]

Meeting Congressmen

Dr. Yang participated Congress Visit Day organized by National Photonics Initiative in the week of July 19, 2021. She met staff from Representative Jake Auchincloss (MA) and Senator Ed Markey office (MA). Dr. Yang shared our research program on photonics for neural modulation and the significance of the development in fundamental studies and potential clinical […]

Single Neuron Stimulation

Our work on photoacoustic single neuron stimulation has been published by Light Science & Application. This work was led by Linli and Ying from Dr. Cheng’s group. It is so exciting to see we are extending the capability of this new technology! BU ECE also highlighted our work in a news report.

PAN, a new system writing to your brain!

We are so excited that our photoacoustic nanotransducer paper is published in Matter, a sister journal with Cell. It is a new nanoparticle system that utilize the photoacoustic effect upon absorbing NIR-II light for neural modulation. Great collaboration with Dr. Cheng, Dr. Man and Dr. Jia group. Congrats, Ying and Yimin!

Congrats, Dr. Dutta!

Amartya successfully defended his Ph.D thesis with a recommendation from his committee for his thesis to be nominated for the best dissertation award in Department of ECE. Way to go, Dr. Dutta, our first Doctor degree from BU ECE department! We wish you best and an exciting start of a new chapter of your life […]

Congrats, Linli for publishing our first paper in the new direction!

Our first paper in the direction of developing photoacoustic devices for cell modulation is published in Photoacoustics! Congrats, Linli, for leading this new direction. It is an exciting interdisciplinary direction requiring expertise in material chemistry, physical chemistry, electrical engineering and biomedical engineering.

Congrats, Kate!

Kate will accept a scientist position in CapSys in MA. Warmest congrats, Kate!  We are so proud of you.
