The Neuroprostheses Research Lab at the University of Florida

The Neuroprostheses Research Lab (NPR Lab) is a research facility located within the University of Florida J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering. The activities in the NPR Lab are centered on basic and applied research utilizing neural engineering approaches to treat neurological disorders. The lab is designed to:

  • Develop and test neural interfaces to help those afflicted with injury and disease.
  • Provide a training ground for the next generation of Scientists.

Mission Statement:

  • Through teamwork, perseverance, integrity, and creativity we strive to achieve responsible, visionary neuroprosthetic research and develop an internationally renowned laboratory in order to conduct groundbreaking research, produce world-class scientists and engineers, improve technology and improve the lives of those afflicted by disease and injury.

Our primary research areas are the following:

  • Brain-machine interfaces
  • Sensation induced by electrical stimulation of neural tissue
  • Sensory repair and augmentation
  • Neural coding and plasticity
