Dr. Milosevic will work alongside fellow co-director Dr. Taufik Valiante to continue delivering on CRANIA’s mission
The CenteR for Advancing Neurotechnological Innovation to Application (CRANIA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Luka Milosevic to the position of Co-director.
Dr. Milosevic will work alongside fellow co-director Dr. Taufik Valiante to continue delivering on CRANIA’s mission, which is to accelerate the translation of neuromodulation research to patient solutions that improve brain health and function.
Dr. Milosevic replaces Dr. Milos R. Popovic who co-founded CRANIA with Dr. Valiante in 2018 and was recently appointed Director of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto and remains Director of the KITE Research Institute.
“I am certain Dr. Milosevic will be an overwhelming success in this role,” said Dr. Popovic. “Given his history working in the fields of biomedical signal processing, machine learning, and computational modelling techniques, he is the most logical successor and I look forward to cheering on CRANIA’s continued success.”
After receiving his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Toronto, Dr. Milosevic pursued a Postdoctoral Fellowship at University of Tübingen Institute for Neuromodulation and Neurotechnology, Germany and currently serves as a Scientist at the Krembil Research Institute, an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto Institute, and an Affiliate Scientist at the KITE Research Institute.
CRANIA is a unique multidisciplinary partnership between the Krembil Research Institute and KITE that is home to 54 scientists. It also has an educational arm called The CRANIA NeuroModulation Institute (CNMI), which operates within the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering (FASE) and brings together experts in the fields of neuroscience and engineering in a collaborative hub for neuromodulation research.
