Erin Purcell
Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering and Electrical Engineering



Erin Purcell studied neural engineering as a graduate student in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan.  Through her graduate and post-doctoral work, her training spans the use of extracellular recordings, intracellular recordings, and optogenetics to control and assess excitability in neurons. As the P.I. of the Regenerative Electrode Interface Lab, Dr. Purcell is pursuing new approaches to characterize, modulate, and regenerate neuronal responses at the interface of electrodes implanted in the brain.
