Dr. Airan is the Finalist for the Science-PINS Prize for Neuromodulation
August 4, 2017
Raag Airan MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Radiology (Neuroimaging and Neurointervention), is the finalist for the Science & PINS Prize for Neuromodulation for his research on noninvasive neuromodulation with nanoparticles.
The Science & PINS Prize for Neuromodulation is a highly competitive prize which honors scientists for their excellent contributions to neuromodulation research. Neuromodulation is any form of alteration of nerve activity through the delivery of physical (electrical, magnetic, optical) stimulation or chemical agents to targeted sites of the body. Established in 2016, the prize is awarded annually for outstanding research as described in a 1,500 word essay based on research performed in the past three years.
Dr. Airan has been invited to present his research later this month at Tsinghua University as well as at the 8th Neuromodulation Congress in China.
Congratulations, Dr. Airan!
