Cesar Marquez-Chin

Dr. Marquez-Chin is a Scientist at KITE. His research focuses on creating new technologies to restore the ability to move voluntarily after stroke and spinal cord injury. Central to his work is the development of systems that connect brains and machines directly which, when used as a therapeutic intervention, can help patients move again even in the most severe forms of paralysis. He also creates new low-cost robotic technologies and advanced alternate user interfaces that support patients and their service providers during physical and occupational rehabilitation.
