Disability Accommodation?

Laurie Bizimana, postdoctoral associate in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering, is developing an innovative non-invasive technique for detecting and decoding brain activity that will improve brain-machine interface (BMI) technology. With the advancement of BMIs, scientists will be able to harness signals from the brain to restore functions lost due to neurological disorders, comas, paralysis and even loss of limbs.

Bizimana is a recipient of the L'Oréal USA 2019 For Women In Science fellowship. As a self-described “mom-scientist,” she wants to be a positive example to women who are considering motherhood alongside a career in science.
