Systems Biology and Neuroengineering

The Systems Biology and Neuroengineering area aims to understand and analyze biological systems within the living cell and in the brain. Examples of related tasks are biomolecular data analysis for medical applications, synthetic biology, establishing the principles of neuroinformation processing in the brain for developing robust sensory processing and motor control algorithms, accelerating the clinical translation of devices that make contact with neurons, and building massively parallel brain-computer interfaces.
