N1 - Funding Information: GEOFFREY S. F. LING, Guest Editor Defense Sciences Office Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Arlington, VA 22203 USA Nitish V. Thakor (F’97) received the undergraduate degree from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India, in 1974. He worked as an engineer with Philips India for two years and then re-ceived the Ph.D. degree from University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1981. He is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering. Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Neu-rology at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, and directs the Laboratory for Neuroengi-neering. He was on the faculty of Northwestern University first (1981–1983) and since then he has been with Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, serving as the Professor of Biomedical Engi-neering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Neurology. His technical expertise is in the areas of neural diagnostic instrumentation, neural microsystem, neural signal processing, optical imaging of the nervous system, rehabilitation, neural control of prosthesis and brain–machine in-terface. He is the Director of a Neuroengineering Training program funded by the National Institute of Health. He has published 225 refereed journal papers and generated 11 patents and carries out research funded mainly by the NIH, NSF, and DARPA. He has been an active promoter of clinical applications of medical technologies resulting in several small business innovation awards, and co-founding three small medical device companies. Dr. Thakor was the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON NEURAL AND REHABILITATION ENGINEERING.. He is a recipient of a Research Career Development Award from the National Institutes of Health and a Presidential Young Investigator Award from the National Science Foundation, and is a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, and Founding Fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society. He is also a recipient of the Centennial Medal from the University of Wisconsin School of Engineering, Honorary Membership from Alpha Eta Mu Beta Biomedical Engineering student Honor Society, award of Technical Excellence in Neuroengineering from IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, and Distinguished Alumnus Award as well as Distinguished Service Award from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India, and Centennial Medal from University of Wisconsin, Madison School of Engineering.
