BME Prof. Tim Bruns, Affiliated Faculty members Euisik Yoon and John Seymour and their labs have developed a novel diamond shuttle to deliver a flexible neural probe that reduces surrounding tissue compression and blood vessel damage. The collaboration between faculty and students in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering included BME PhD student Zach Sperry. The new shuttle could hopefully be used to deliver neural probes that improve accuracy with less damage and disruption to the nervous system circuitry. These findings were published in Microsystems & Nanoengineering on June 1st.
