Research Fellows [top]

John Seymour

John Seymour earned his B.S. in Engineering Physics from The Ohio State University but has slowly fallen in love with the block “M”. He received his M.S. (2005) and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering (2009) here at the University of Michigan. He worked at NeuroNexus, a neurotechnology firm, for 4 years prior to coming back to academia and developed expertise in MEMS, electrophysiological sensors, neurotech medical devices, and optical stimulation tools. He has led several successful SBIR grants as the PI around long-term tissue response and high-density optoelectrodes, has 2 issued patents, and 9 patents pending. The best part of the Yoon Lab and University of Michigan are the collaborative people and diverse skill sets which enables us to tackle the toughest problems in neuroscience and medicine. We are actively applying microfabrication techniques at the single-cell level for both neuroscience and medical diagnosis. We also develop high-density microsystems to improve clinical neurotechnology.
