The National Science Foundation has funded Josep Jornet and collaborators from the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, to use brain organoid models to explore brain-machine interfaces.
The article, "Wanted: In-flight Drone Charging, Itty-Bitty Spy
Cams, and More" discusses a recent Broad Agency Announcement from
the U.S. Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office, and
includes Professor Jornet's thoughts on how to achieve one of their
requirements: a mini wireless video transmitter.
Edward Furlani and Josep Jornet (along with UB professors Albert
Titus, Mark Ehrensberger, and Tom Furlani) will collaborate on the
project, developing a new class of programmable electrical
stimulation devices with integrated sensor and communications
technologies, for the Buffalo Institute for Genomics and Data
