Neural Prostheses

Faith A. Bazley, M.S.E.

Faith A. Bazley joined SINAPSE as a Research Assistant in July 2012 during the start-up of the institute and then served as the Project Manager of the Neuroprosthesis Program through February 2014. Previously, she received her M.S.E degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Johns Hopkins University (2012) and a B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University (2010). During her studies, she was a member of the Biomedical Engineering Society, Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honors Society, and a founding member of the Eta Pi chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity.

In 2008 and 2009, she received two summer research fellowships to study at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology. She has co-authored severeal journal articles and conference papers. She is a member of IEEE and EMBS, and she was nominated as a student paper competition finalist at the 33rd Annual International Conference (2011) of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, where she presented her work in Boston, MA. Faith's research interests include peripheral nerve prostheses, repair of peripheral nerve injury, electrophysiology, electrode-nerve interfacing, and bench-to-bedside translation of biomedical devices.
