Sahil Sharma is awarded a MSCA fellowship
Sahil Sharma, a Postdoctoral researcher at GIN, Grenoble, is awarded a two-year Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowship to work on his "SonoNeuroS" project, "Wireless Ultrasound Powered Diamond-based Neural Stimulators," in the NeuroTech Lab.
A MSCA Postdoctoral Individual Fellowship is one of the most prestigious awards in support of an early career in research dedicated to frontier research.
At Grenoble Institute of Neuroscience INSERM U-1216, Sahil will work under the supervision of Hebert's and Nawabi's teams. Additionally, during a 6-month secondment at ESYCOM Paris under the supervision of Lionel Rousseau, he will design a fully diamond and Piezoelectric Micro-Machined Ultrasonic Transducer (p-MUT) technology-based neural implants.
He has recently focused his studies on Neurotechnology, with the goal of developing fully wireless neuro-stimulation technology powered by ultrasound.
A Neural stimulator will be tested after development to analyze the effect of electrical stimulation on the output of retinal ganglion cells.
