TheraFUS Lab

TheraFUS laboratory works on novel low-intensity focused ultrasound (FUS) techniques therapeutic applications

Currently ongoing projects include

FUS-inducing blood-brain barrier opening to augment anticancer drugs delivery in brain tumors

FUS-augmenting drugs delivery to improve the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases

Ultrasound deep-brain neurostimulation for treating brain disorders and degenerative diseases

Numerical simulation of transcranial FUS based on highly resolved human and animal head models
