Dr. Jeffrey Herron
Assistant Professor of Neurological Surgery @University of Washington
Jeffrey Herron, PhD, is an engineering-focused researcher and assistant professor within the UW Department of Neurological Surgery. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington working on adaptive deep brain stimulation techniques to improve treatments for both Essential Tremor and Parkinson’s Disease. After concluding his PhD studies, he worked at Medtronic developing new research tools for enhancing neuromodulation research. In particular, he led the development of the Summit System’s software API which allows researchers to develop protocol-specific software applications for real-time control of an implanted DBS system capable of both sensing and providing therapeutic stimulation. He returned to UW in January 2019 to work on developing new research tools and systems to explore the applications of bi-directional neural interfaces to enable or improve the treatment of neurological diseases, disorders, and injuries.
