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. 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. In her spare time, Lauren enjoys traveling the world.
