Faculty in the News: Fan Lam, Assistant Professor, Bioengineering

LabRoots (Yorba Linda, Calif., March 5) – Illinois researchers have developed a novel approach to mapping brain behavior when someone is sick or healthy. “If you look at the brain chemically, it’s like a soup with a bunch of ingredients,” says Fan Lam, a professor of bioengineering at the U. of I. and co-author on the study. “Understanding the biochemistry of the brain, how it organizes spatiotemporally, and how those chemical reactions support computing is critical to having a better idea of how the brain functions in health as well as during disease.”
