Bringing observation and fixing complex systems to a “ground truth” level
Biomedical Engineering

Ed’s group develops tools for analyzing and repairing complex biological systems, such as the brain, and applies them systematically to reveal ground truth principles of biological function and to repair these systems. Their philosophy is to try to bring the observation and fixing of such complex systems to a “ground truth” level, so that we can understand and address the fundamental mechanisms of operation of these systems. Their vision is to create technologies that enable the correction of brain disorders and other complex diseases that affect almost everyone, directly or indirectly, and to provide a deeper understanding of the human condition, and help humanity achieve a more enlightened state.
