Welcome to the Chen Lab!

An Introduction

The brain and the neurons within it dictate our interaction with the external world and defines our internal mindscape. Thus, disruption to any aspect of this organ leads to immense individual as well as societal costs. The primary research focus of our lab is to develop novel methods for restoring function of the brain after it has been damaged through stem cell biology techniques, neural tissue engineering, and modern neural interface technologies. As part of the Dept. of Neurosurgery at PSOM, we are also interested in exploring new ways for preserving brain function during neurosurgical procedures. Through all our endeavors, we hope to ultimately improve the outcomes of patients suffering from various brain-related pathologies. The following website highlights the current research going on in the lab as well as archives past research and publications.
