The UW Institute for Neuroengineering (UWIN) hosts visiting scientists who are at the University of Washington collaborating with researchers in all facets of neural engineering – from computational neuroscience to biology to bioengineering.  Current and past UWIN visiting scientists are listed below.

Rafael Yuste, one of the UWIN visiting scientists Dr. Rafael Yuste, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Biological Sciences and director of the NeuroTechnology Center at Columbia University, will be a visiting scientist at UWIN in 2018-2019. Professor Yuste is an expert on advanced optical methods for in vivo neural recording and additionally has contributed significantly in the area of single neuron biophysics. His laboratory analyses structure, dynamics and coding in cortex and in the cnidarian Hydra.
Albrecht Stroh, one of the UWIN Visiting Scientists Dr. Albrecht Stroh, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Molecular Imaging and Optogenetics, Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, was a visiting scientist with UWIN in 2016. Professor Stroh’s work combines state-of-the-art optogenetic techniques with optical neuroimaging. These techniques can be used to capture calcium signals from the brains of mice in vivo to study information processing.
