ABOUT THE LAB

Our goal is to develop the algorithms that will power the next generation bioelectronic medicine devices to enable early diagnosis, disease severity assessment and personalization and adaptability of the therapy. To this end, we are focusing on how the nervous system senses the state and affects the function of the immune, metabolic and cardiopulmonary systems. We want to use this knowledge to develop devices that are able to diagnose and treat various diseases and conditions by interacting with the nervous system. To achieve that, we combine neural and physiological signal processing, machine learning and neurophysiology.

CURRENT PROJECTS
  • Decoding Immune States from Vagal Signals
    Dysregulation of the inflammatory reflex, a critical neural circuit that maintains immunological homeostasis, is a hallmark of inflammation. This neuronal reflex has a sensory and motor component conducted in the vagus nerve. Infection or injury activate immune cells to release cytokines and other mediators of inflammation. Such cytokine production in the spleen is suppressed by efferent neural signals that arise in the vagus nerve and mediate the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway. Bioelectronic devices target the motor arc of this reflex by electrically stimulating the vagus nerve. This stimulation reduces cytokine production and inflammation in preclinical animal models of inflammatory diseases and improves disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease. Currently, there is no closed-loop bioelectronic patient specific device targeting the inflammatory reflex. In order to develop such devices, there is a critical need to decode inflammatory related neural sensory signals and define the relationships between the activity of the afferent vagus nerve and the sensing of inflammation. Our long-term goals are to understand the neuronal signatures of the afferent arc of the inflammatory reflex, determine their modulation during sepsis and develop algorithms that will facilitate real time diagnosis of systemic inflammation.

  • Decoding Metabolic States from Vagal Signals
    Glucose homeostasis is thought to be controlled by the central and peripheral nervous systems, and dysregulation of blood glucose due to a decreased sensitivity to insulin or problems with insulin production results in type 2 diabetes. The vagus transmits signals to and from the pancreas and liver to control the release of hormones such as insulin and glucagon which act to regulate blood glucose concentration. Our long-term goal is to develop bioelectronic devices that can target the afferent arc of this pathway at the cervical level to decode the metabolic state via machine learning algorithms, and close the loop by stimulating the vagus to increase or decrease the blood glucose concentration. 

  • Closed-loop Optimization of Bioelectronic Therapies
    A major goal of Bioelectronic Medicine is to develop closed-loop interfaces that would not only record neural signals in order to decode levels of biomarkers, but also modulate the signals appropriately by applying parametric nerve stimulation. While the selection of stimulation parameters to consistently up- or down-regulate various biomarkers remains a daunting task, resolving the encoding of these biomarkers by the nervous system can provide valuable insight into the optimization of these parameters. By understanding the signals that encode changes in biomarkers, the ranges of parameter values can be narrowed down and the dimensionality and complexity of the stimulation optimization problem can be reduced significantly.

  • Noninvasive Bioelectronic Analytics
    Biomarkers that reflect disease presence or intensity, or treatment efficacy are central to medical advance. Recently, modern application of information processing and decoding algorithms permit building on the measurement of tried and true physiological biomarkers like temperature and blood pressure so that investigators can understand broader phenomena of autonomic dysregulation. We want to deploy our expertise in measuring and processing coordinative objective physiological signals with up-to-date devices that simultaneously stream information from the brain, heart, lungs, eyes, skin, and peripheral nerves. We will test the hypothesis that systematic application of advanced data analysis (signal processing and machine learning) that interrogates the relationship of these measurement to disease states will enhance our ability to detect early and significant deflection from the normal state and so enhance current treatment protocols and perhaps suggest new therapeutic opportunities.

  • Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning applied in Healthcare Data
    Develop a whole framework of ML and RL algorithms to analyze multimodal data captured during a patient's visit for a variety of different conditions, diseases, and applications.
