Research Scientist, Small Scale Systems Integration
and Packaging Center (S3IP)
Research interests: James Turner is a research scientist in the Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging Center (S3IP), a New York State Center of Excellence at Binghamton University, with formal training in engineering (BS) and biophysics (PhD), both from SUNY Buffalo. His current research interests include the development of biological applications for flexible electronics. In particular, he is interested in developing improved sensor systems for detecting neuronal electrical signals and for detecting and analyzing neurochemicals. He was previously a professor of biomedical sciences at SUNY Albany and a principal investigator at the NYS Dept. of Health’s Wadsworth Center, where he developed an NIH-funded program to evaluate the function and tissue integration of electrical sensors implanted in the brain, and an NSF-sponsored program to develop nanotechnology devices for application in the biological and medical sciences.
