The Center for Neuroprosthetics is part of both the School of Engineering and the School of Life Sciences. It draws upon the EPFL’s expertise in biology, neuroscience, brain imaging, and genetics as well as biomedical, electrical, mechanical engineering, and nanotechnology. The Center also draws upon EPFL’s cutting edge research in signal analysis, theoretical and computational neuroscience, the recently launched European Flagship “Human Brain Project” and the Swiss National Centers of Competence in Research “Robotics” and “Synapsy”. 
In addition, through support from the Bertarelli foundation, a new research collaboration dedicated to translational neuroscience and neuroengineering has been created between Harvard Medical School, EPFL’s Institute of Bio-engineering, and the Center for Neuroprosthetics.
