Welcome to the BioElectronic Vision Lab

The mission of BioElectronic Vision Lab (BEVL) is to create and translate technological solutions for visual dysfunction. We investigate the fundamental mechanisms through which implantable and wearable electronic systems interact with the visual system and other sensory modalities, and the long term consequences of such systems on the functional and anatomical organization of the visual system. Based on this understanding, we create and optimize medical devices designed to improve the quality of life for the visually impaired.  The main projects in the lab include the bioelectronic retinal prosthesis and wearable smart camera. BEVL is currently funded by the National Eye Institute and the National Science Foundation.
