In honoring scientists who support U.S. troops, the National Science Foundation (NSF) shined a light on UH Cullen College engineer Jose Contreras-Vidal for his work improving prosthetics with brain-computer interfaces.

"Our advances in the development of noninvasive neuroprostheses for upper and lower limb amputees could have not been possible without the continued support of the National Science Foundation,” said Contreras-Vidal, professor of electrical and computer engineering. “Our goal is to develop reliable and affordable neurotechnologies to help individuals with limb amputation move and feel again."
