  • Welcoming Dr. Lauren Wengerd!

    Join us in welcoming Dr. Lauren Wengerd to the NeuroTech Institute team! Dr. Wengerd is an Assistant Professor who brings with her a wealth of knowledge in neurotechnologies for rehabilitation. In her new collaborative role, she will be working with engineers, data scientists, and other healthcare professionals to conduct clinical trials and investigate neurotechnologies for people with paralysis and other neurological impairments. As an occupational therapist specializing in neurorehabilitation, Dr. Wengerd has worked extensively with a variety of neurological conditions such as stroke and spinal cord injury. Her current work primarily focuses on using electromyography (EMG) and functional electrical stimulation (FES) to restore hand and arm function in adults with upper extremity paralysis. "I was drawn to the NeuroTech Institute because of its commitment to innovation and its focus on developing cutting-edge technologies for people living with neurological conditions," Dr. Wengerd said. Collaborating with other like-minded individuals to break down barriers to clinical translation was inspiring to her, and joining the NTI team gives her the opportunity to share her passion of improving the lives of others while bringing new solutions for neurological conditions to market faster. “My patients have always been my 'why,' and I feel confident that working in the Neurotech Institute will enhance my ability to make meaningful change."
