Careers at the Intersection of Research and Design: A New Definition of ‘Neuro-Architecture’

MIND Neuro-Architecture Seminar at UCSF 

New Careers in 'Neuro-Architecture' for Biomedical PhDs

On March 8th, 2018, MIND hosted Dr. Eve Edelstein and Dr. Ruchi Masand (UCSF and MIND alumnus) of the Human Experience Lab at Perkins + Will to discuss a new career opportunity for biomedical PhDs within architectural design.

"Neuro-Architecture" applies neural and clinical science to understand how the built environment influences the brain, body and behavior. Cutting-edge biomedical research is distilled into new design guidelines and innovative architectural solutions to address people’s changing needs. 


Learning Outcomes: 

By the end of the session, participants were able to: 

  • Describe the new emerging field of Neuro-Architecture.
  • Identify how you can apply the scientific method and your scientific training to develop disruptive design solutions.
  • Learn about how you can become a part of the team at Hx Lab.
