Meet Dr. Chen

My primary interest as a neurosurgeon-scientist is the restoration of function after the brain has been damaged. From the clinical side, I work in the areas of neurotrauma, functional neurosurgery (i.e., deep brain stimulation and epilepsy surgery), and the resection of tumors in and around eloquent brain tissue. I am interested in clinical trials examining new methods for restoring brain function, mapping brain activity after injury, and bringing new technologies such as augemented reality into the operating room. I also run a translational laboratory focused on rebuilding the circuitry of the brain using a combination of techniques drawn from stem cell biology, neural tissue engineering, and neural interface technologies.
