My laboratory engages engineers, neuroscientists, mathematicians, and clinicians to create and apply state-of-the-art neural interfaces, kinematic sensors, and biochemical sensors to study neuromotor disease and insult in relevant animal models and humans. Currently, main research goals include (i) Characterization of neuromotor activity during unconstrained, complex motor behavior in non-human primates; and (ii) High-resolution neuromotor disease analysis and quantification.

Overview  |  Research  |  Grants/Awards


David Borton received his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis in 2006 and his PhD in Bioengineering from Brown University in 2012. He then received the Marie Curie IIF award for Brain-spinal interface research conducted at the Swiss National Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland under the direction of Gregoire Courtine. David leads an interdisciplinary team of researchers focused on the design, development, and implementation of novel neural interfaces for understand both basic science of, and functional applications to neuromotor diseases.
