We are excited to announce that our collaborative team (PI: Dr. Kurt, co-PIs: Dr. Zhang, Dr. Weickenmeier, and Dr. Balchandani) was awarded $2,000,000 by the National Science Foundation for the project titled "Tackling Brain Diseases with Mechanics: A Data-Driven Approach to Merge Advanced Neuroimaging and Multi-Physics Modeling"! This proposal will support research to understand the biomechanics of the brain through a combination of ultrahigh field MR techniques and multi-physics modeling to tackle and understand brain diseases, such as traumatic brain injury. We can't wait to get started!
We are excited to share the news that our collaborative team (PI: Dr. Uedo, co-PI: Dr. Kurt) was awarded $200,000 for our project titled "Tunable Resonant Actuation for Magnetic Resonance Elastography of Active Tissues".
KurtLab is pleased to announce that we have been awarded $35,000 for our “Real-time Concussion Monitoring in Contact Sports through Wearable Sensors” proposal by the New Jersey Health Foundation. This project will combine state-of-the-art wearable sensors with machine-learning algorithms to learn and predict neuromechanical responses in soccer players. This one year award will sponsor this research project from February 2020 through February 2021.
