  • Stanford engineers develop a wireless, fully implantable device to stimulate nerves in mice | Engineering
    complex movement is more challenging when the mouse is tethered Poon had made a name for herself creating miniature implantable wirelessly powered devices Although that capability was badly needed in the optogenetics world Poon didn t know it until she attended a neural engineering workshop that brought together faculty from neurosciences and engineering At that event Poon met Logan Grosenick who was a graduate student from the lab of Karl Deisseroth a Stanford professor of bioengineering and of psychiatry and behavioral sciences who invented optogenetics But Grosenick didn t have time to lead a collaboration Through follow up conversations Poon eventually met graduate student Kate Montgomery who was working in the lab of Scott Delp professor of bioengineering and of mechanical engineering and collaborating with Deisseroth Since then our labs have established a lasting scientific relationship said Montgomery who has an interdisciplinary fellowship through Stanford Bio X She and graduate student Alexander Yeh who worked in Poon s lab were co first authors on the research paper Before a new wave of tinfoil hat designs takes over the Internet it is important to clarify one point Optogenetics only works on nerves that have been carefully prepared to contain the proteins that respond to light In the lab scientists either breed mice to contain those proteins in select groups of nerves or they carefully and painstakingly inject viruses carrying the protein DNA into nerves the size of dental floss Shining a light whether through a fiber optic cable or a wireless device on neurons that haven t been prepared has no effect Powering up Poon said that developing the tiny device to deliver light was the easy part She and her colleagues developed that and had it working a few months after the workshop What was hard was figuring out how to power it over a large area without compromising power efficiency In behavioral experiments the mouse would be moving all around and the researchers needed a way of tracking that movement to provide localized power Poon knew other labs were tackling the same problem using bulky devices that affix to the skull and complex arrays of coils paired with sensors to locate the mouse and deliver localized power We were lazy Poon said That sounded like a lot of work So instead she got what she called a crazy idea to use the mouse s own body to transfer radio frequency energy that was just the right wavelength to resonate in a mouse Crazy maybe but it worked and she published the results Aug 4 in Physical Review Applied with co first authors John Ho a graduate student who is now an assistant professor at the National University of Singapore and Yuji Tanabe a research associate in her lab Poon had the idea but initially didn t know how to build a chamber to amplify and store radio frequency energy She and Tanabe consulted with Tanabe s father who had worked at Stanford s SLAC research center and knew a

    can be a part of it through the Research Experience for Undergraduates REU program REU gives undergraduates the opportunity to work on cutting edge research guided by Stanford faculty Professors are excited to work with bright enthusiastic undergraduates If you are interested look below to learn more For general advice on how to get involved in research at Stanford take a look at this helpful guide Stanford Undergraduate Advising and Research UAR Guide I believe that there is no better way to explore your major than by doing research with a faculty member in your department I was extraordinarily lucky to have received an REU grant the summer before my sophomore year Not only did I get to meet graduate students and other undergraduates in my major who shared valuable insights into what being a chemical engineer was like but I was also exposed to cutting edge research and laboratory techniques to which I otherwise would not have gotten hands on experience Milena Gonzalez Chemical Engineering I am a senior majoring in Bioengineering who has worked in multiple research labs and held one internship in industry over the past 3 5 years Performing academic research at Stanford allowed me to develop technical skills relevant for graduate studies and the workforce It also provided me the scientific mindset that emphasizes constant questioning Those skills and attitude proved useful in my classes and when I obtained an internship developing a cochlear implant hearing device for the profoundly deaf Meghan Bowler Bioengineering Printer friendly version How to apply Frequently Asked Questions You are not authorized to access this content I ve never had any research experience before Is the REU program really a possibility Everyone starting research has that question so do not be deterred Around 200 students are part of the program
