WEBSITE(S)| Szablowski Lab - Noninvasive Neuroengineering at Rice University

Dr. Szablowski works on technologies for highly-precise interfacing with cells in deep tissues. He developed agents for MRI imaging, therapeutics that can be programmed to target different diseases, and methods of noninvasive control of specific neural circuits in living organisms. In the Laboratory for Noninvasive Neuroengineering, he continues to innovate in developing methodologies for controlling and monitoring cells in one of the most complex systems in nature – the mammalian brain.
