Marco Capogrosso, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Neurosurgery. He completed his doctoral studies in Biomedical Engineering and Robotics at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa, Italy and post-doctoral training at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland where he worked on the development of brain spinal interfaces for the restoration of voluntary motor control after spinal cord injury. Before Joining the University of Pittsburgh, he was research faculty at the primate center of the University of Fribourg, Switzerland were he managed the multi-center Platform for Translational Neuroscience. Dr. Capogrosso research interests broadly involve the study of the interactions between electrical stimulation and the dynamics of neural circuits. Specifically, he is interested in the design of neurotechnologies to restore sensory and motor function after neural damage or disease. At the moment his research focuses on the development of neurotechnologies for the restoration of arm and hand functions after motor paralysis.
