Michael Wolfson, PhD, joined the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) in 2016 as a Program Director in the Division of Discovery Science and Technology. He has programmatic oversight of discovery and applied research grants, with emphasis on implantable and assistive medical devices. He is the project team lead for SPARC Component 2 “Next Generation Tools and Technologies”, chair of the NIH National Robotics Initiative and a member of the trans-government NRI effort, a member of BRAIN Initiative Team B: Neural Recording/Modulation Technologies, and a member of the trans-NIH Medical Rehabilitation Coordination Committee. Mike received a Sc.B. degree in electrical engineering from Brown University and a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Cornell University. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a member of the Society for Neuroscience. Mike specializes in project management of novel biologic and microscale systems within commercial, small business, and academic R&D environments. His expertise spans multiple disciplines and covers emerging domains, such as bio-, micro-, and nano-system technologies.
