Repairing the Brain with Dr. Ed Boyden

Ed leads the Synthetic Neurobiology Group, which develops tools for analyzing and repairing complex biological systems, such as the brain. These inventions include optogenetic tools, which enable control of neural activity with light; expansion microscopy, which enables ordinary microscopes to do nanoimaging; new tools for high-speed imaging of living biological signals and networks; noninvasive brain stimulation strategies that may help with conditions ranging from Alzheimer's to blindness; and new strategies for inexpensively creating 3-D nanotechnology.

Join Dr. Boyden live as part of our Gairdner Foundation series geared towards Gr 7-12 students.
