Chao Chen receives Open Mind Grant

Chao Chen presents at the Open Mind Symposium

On Friday Sept. 17, 2021, Chao Chen pitched his research proposal

ULTRAPROBE: Ultrasensitive digital probe for transcranial ultrasound imaging of the brain

during the first Open Mind Symposium. Chao is working as a postdoc in Michiel Pertijs' Ultrasound ASICs group at the Electronic Instumentation Lab.

Chao’s proposal, written together with Dr. Pieter Kruizinga of Erasmus MC, is among the 17% winning proposals of the Open Mind Call 2021, and is a nice example of convergence between Erasmus MC and TU Delft. It aims to make a breakthrough in functional ultrasound imaging of the brain, by developing novel instrumentation to deal with the attenuation and aberrations introduced by the skull.
