Professor Paul Yoo (BME, ECE) is designing novel electrodes for non-invasive electrical nerve stimulation, a technology that could be used in therapies for the treatment of epilepsy, depression, Parkinson’s disease and many pain disorders.
Yoo’s project is one of six from across U of T Engineering to receive funding from the Connaught Innovation Awards, which helps accelerate the development and commercialization of promising technologies.
