Innovation at the crossroad of neuroscience, engineering and medicine

The EPFL CNP was created in 2012. In 2016, all CNP groups – 3 from EPFL School of Life Sciences and 5 from EPFL School of Engineering, relocated to Campus Biotech where the unique ecosystem promotes the exchange of ideas, experiences sharing and the advancement of translational research. EPFL CNP members operate in the three world-class experimental platforms at Campus Biotech– Neural Microsystems, Pre-clinical Neuroscience and Human Neuroscience platforms – and have longstanding partnerships with neighboring health institutions.

Most EPFL CNP projects involve two or more CNP teams excelling in the following fields:

  • Soft and multimodal neural interfaces
  • Micro-nanofabrication
  • Imaging
  • Machine learning
  • Signal processing
  • Brain-machine interfaces
  • Robotics
  • Translational research
  • System neuroscience
  • Neuromodulation
  • Cognitive neuroscience
  • Sensorimotor neuroprosthetics
  • Sensory restoration (touch, vision and audition)
  • Spinal cord injury and neural repair
  • Stroke
  • Healthy ageing
