Major Research Initiatives
Drexel Engineering Cities Initiative (DECI) is the foundation of a new approach to studying urban systems. DECI focuses on the engineering of cities, policy development, and the creation of environmentally sustainable urban habitats that function for people and society.
There are diverse ongoing neuroengineering research activities at Drexel University and at partnering institutions including functional optical brain imaging, neurorobotics, computational neuroscience, neuroinformatics, brain-computer interface, tissue engineering, neuropharmaceutical engineering, and neuroimaging.
The goal of this Major Research Initiative is to build on our recent achievements in the application of plasma science to biology and medicine. These breakthrough developments grew out of productive collaborations between engineers, biological scientists and physicians.
The goal of the Human Cognition Enhancement Program (HCEP) is to focus on research into brain and behavior relationships, brain dysfunction and impaired cognition, and the development of methodologies to enhance cognition and skilled motor performance in both normal and disabled individuals.
