Area of Research: Devising methods of cell and tissue replacement for the adult neocortex to repair damage or age-related degeneration.
Jean Hebert, Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, proposed the challenge of improving upon AI driven robots for biology. Jean is working on a project to replace portions of brain tissue via cellular reprogramming and engineering. One difficult step of the process is the surgery involved in the steps to assemble the brain tissue in vivo. If we had robots that could perform these actions with the aid of artificial intelligence, it could make it easier to implement practical tissue replacement therapies.
