Our Mission


Penn’s Center for Neuroengineering & Therapeutics is working to develop and test new devices that can restore brain and nervous system function after it has been lost to disease or disability.

We represent a versatile community of researchers who share three aims:

MAP the neural code in brain and nervous system disorders and discover how it can be manipulated to improve or restore function.

ENGINEER new mapping and treatment technologies that can be translated into patient care and improve lives.

EDUCATE emerging leaders in this field at the interface of clinical medicine, engineering, neuroscience, and industry.

Featured Lab

Davis Lab

Dr. Davis’ research centers around utilizing both the advancing fields of invasive neurophysiology and neuroimaging to better localize epileptic networks in medication refractory epilepsy patients. She hopes that improving localization will enable epileptologists to better localize epileptic networks and assign individual patients to the most efficacious therapy, for example, seizure control devices, resective surgery, or continued medical management.   View Davis Lab website here.
