E.J. Chichilnisky

E.J. Chichilnisky is the John R. Adler Professor of Neurosurgery, and Professor of Ophthalmology, at Stanford University, where he has worked since 2013 after 15 years at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. He received his B.A. in Mathematics from Princeton University and his M.S. in mathematics and Ph.D. in neuroscience from Stanford University. His research has focused on understanding the spatiotemporal patterns of electrical activity in the retina that convey visual information to the brain, and their origins in retinal circuitry, using large-scale multi-electrode recordings. Increasingly, his work has transitioned toward using this basic science knowledge along with electrical stimulation to develop a novel high-fidelity artificial retina for treating incurable blindness. He is the recipient of an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, a McKnight Scholar Award, a McKnight Technological Innovation in Neuroscience Award, and a Research to Prevent Blindness Stein Innovation Award.
