Takashi D.Y. Kozai, PhD Assistant Professor

Takashi Kozai is an Assistant Professor in Bioengineering. T.K. Kozai has been in the Neural Engineering/Neural Interface Engineering field for 15 years with 10 years of formal training in bioelectronics, microfabrication and microelectrode technology as well as a strong background in molecular and cellular biology (2001+). His diverse education and research background provide a unique combination of knowledge to engineer optimized devices that interface with the human body, particularly for neural interfaces. The goal of his research program is aimed towards understanding the intimate biocompatibility and materials details of the microelectrode-tissue neural interface provide insight into creating next-generation implants as well as employing these technologies as new tools for studying brain injury and neurological diseases.
