Prof. Konstantinos Michmizos wins the NIH K Career Development Award on Neurorehabilitation Robotics. The NIH K Awards are given to Professors who have demonstrated abilities to become leaders in their field. The K Career Award ($250K, 2 years) will enable Konstantinos to combine Biological and Artificial Learning, in collaboration with Hermano Igo Krebs (MIT), Amy J. Bastian (JHU), and Matti Hamalainen (Harvard Medical School).
Prof. Konstantinos Michmizos wins the Brain Health Institute Grant Award for the proposal entitled "Computational Astrocyence."
This Award is in collaboration with leaders in experimental neuroscience: Cheryl Dreyfus, Zhiping Pang (Rutgers Medical School), and Bonnie Firestein (SAS Cell Biology and Neuroscience.)
Konstantinos Michmizos wins an Intel Grant Award on Neuromorphic Computing for his single-PI proposal entitled "Spike-based Active SLAM for autonomous robots developing action habits."
Konstantinos's efforts are timely placing our Department at the center of the emerging Neuromorphic Community and introduces Rutgers as one of the 10 research universities in the world having access to Intel's unique neuromorphic chip.
Prof. Konstantinos Michmizos introduces a new graduate course Brain Inspired Computing.
Prof. Konstantinos Michmizos received the Busch Biomedical Grant Award for his project, entitled “Computational Neuromodulation: Neuromarkers to personalize Deep Brain Stimulation.” The award is highly competitive, with only 5% of submitted proposals receiving an award.
Each year, the Computer Science Graduate Student Society (CSGSS) votes to recognize excellence in graduate-level teaching. For the 2015-2016 academic year, CSGSS has given its teaching award to Prof. James Abello, with Prof. Konstantinos Michmizos the runner-up.
