Professor Jin Hyung Lee receives 2010 Okawa Foundation Award
Professor Jin Hyung Lee has been awarded the 2010 Okawa Foundation Research Grant. Her research project entitled "Real-Time Brain Circuit Debugging with Optogenetic Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (ofMRI)" aims to develop a revolutionary new method to debug the brain circuit in real time. This is a highly innovative and challenging task has not been accomplished yet. To achieve this, Dr. Lee utilizez three novel technologies (optogenetics, passband b-SSFP fMRI, optogenetics fMRI (ofMRI)), out of which two were pioneered by Dr. Lee herself. These novel technologies will be combined with a new parallel processing design to achieve its real-time capabilities. The Grand Presentation Ceremony will be held on October 13th in San Francisco.
