2016 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: Electrical Engineering
Supported by: Bio-X
Mentor: Ada Poon, Electrical Engineering

Karen’s research project works to extend the use of optogenetic tools to cardiac applications. This includes designing and building soft, stretchable, implantable wireless devices to deliver light to cells in the heart. The development of these new tools will contribute greatly to the use of cardiac optogenetics to understand heath functions in health and disease.
