Description de la soumission d'un avis
Recipient of the ERC Starting Grant 2016 and ERC Proof-of-Concept Grant 2020
Adam Williamson is a Principal Investigator at the Institut de Neurosciences des Systèmes (INS), a part of Inserm at Aix-Marseille Université (AMU), France, since April 2014.
He is a recipient of the ERC Starting Grant 2016 and ERC Proof-of-Concept Grant 2020, using novel technology-based therapies and neuroprosthetics in the treatment of epilepsy. Generally, his research can be classified as technology-based, focused on in vivo applications for numerous new electronic devices and brain stimulation methods in pathophysiological neuronal networks related to epilepsy.
His most cited works have used organic electronic materials, due to their exceptionally attractive properties for neuroscience, including materials with tunable mechanical flexibility, mixed ionic/electronic conduction, enhanced biocompatibility, significantly improved stimulation and recording interfaces, and the capability for drug delivery.
Most recently, his work is focused on non-invasive deep brain stimulation in Epilepsy using Temporal Interference.
Adam received his B.Sc. degree and M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering at Texas Tech University, USA, where his work was focused on the fabrication and optimization of silicon transistors with Professor Richard Gale.
In 2011 he received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the Technische Universität Ilmenau (TUI), Germany, where his work was focused on the integration of nano-structures into silicon photodiodes with Prof. Martin Hoffmann (the Department of Micromechanical Systems, TUI, Germany).
From 2011 to 2014, he worked as a postdoc at TUI with Prof. Andreas Schober (the Department of Nano-Biosystem Technology, TUI, Germany), where his work was focused on nanostructure-enhanced electrophysiology and artificial synapse technology. In 2014 he joined INS in Marseille to focus exclusively on neuroengineering.
Awarded an ERC Consolidator for his project EMUNITI
Adam Williamson starts the year well by being awarded an ERC Consolidator for his project EMUNITI
"Treatment of epilepsy by neuromodulation using non-invasive temporal interference stimulation".
Very proud of its brilliant researcher, NeuroMarseille would also like to thank the members of the GINTER-ERC working group for their friendly and professional help to Adam!
