"Implanted Neurotechnology to Understand and Restore Arm and Hand Function"

Jennifer Collinger, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor
Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
University of Pittsburgh

Jennifer Collinger’s research interests are related to the use of neuroprosthetics to restore function for individuals with upper limb paralysis or loss. She is developing intracortical brain-computer interface technology for individuals with tetraplegia. Her work also includes non-invasive imaging for measuring neuroplasticity after spinal cord injury or amputation. 

Bio:
Jennifer L. Collinger, Ph.D. is a Research Biomedical Engineer at the VA R&D Center of Excellence and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Pittsburgh. Collinger received her Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of Pittsburgh in April 2009.  Her doctoral work focused on the prevention of upper limb injuries in manual wheelchair users.  
 

The Bioengineering Seminar Series is co-hosted by the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, and the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University.
