Danny Lam

Ph.D. Candidate, BME

My research focus is improving the overall neural interface through novel methods. My current projects include investigating selective nanoparticle delivery to curb cortical implant-induced neuroinflammation, characterizing minimally-invasive injectable electrodes for peripheral neuromodulation, and developing resorbable bioelectronics for transient neural interfacing.

I study fascicular anatomy of the human vagus nerves using Micro CT. My research on fascicle dynamics (Vagotopy) provides insight on how these morphological changes impact electroceutical efficacy and can provide improved nerve models for simulation and can contribute to more targeted electrode cuff designs for interfacing
