BioGuosong Hong's research aims to bridge materials science and neuroscience, and blur the distinction between the living and non-living worlds by developing novel neuroengineering tools to interrogate and manipulate the brain in a minimally invasive way. Specifically, the Hong lab is currently developing ultrasound, near-infrared and microwave-based in-vivo neural interfaces with minimal invasiveness and targeted neural specificity.
Guosong received his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Stanford University in 2014. His Ph.D. research focused on the development of a new fluorescence imaging method in the second near-infrared window (NIR-II window, 1,000-1,700 nm) to afford deep-tissue penetration in the brain and other biological tissues. During his postdoctoral training at Harvard University, Guosong developed tissue-like mesh electronics neural probes to interrogate the brain and the retina with chronic stability, and is a recipient of the American Heart Association (AHA) Postdoctoral Fellowship and the NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00). Guosong joined the Stanford faculty in September 2018, and is an assistant professor of Materials Science and Engineering, and the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute.
Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Emeritus
BioProfessor Huggins joined Stanford as Assistant Professor in 1954, was promoted to Associate Professor in 1958, and to Professor in 1962.
His research activities have included studies of imperfections in crystals, solid-state reaction kinetics, ferromagnetism, mechanical behavior of solids, crystal growth, and a wide variety of topics in physical metallurgy, ceramics, solid state chemistry and electrochemistry. Primary attention has recently been focused on the development of understanding of solid state ionic phenomena involving solid electrolytes and mixed ionic-electronic conducting materials containing atomic or ionic species such as lithium, sodium or oxygen with unusually high mobility, as well as their use in novel battery and fuel cell systems, electrochromic optical devices, sensors, and in enhanced heterogeneous catalysis. He was also involved in the development of the understanding of the key role played by the phase composition and oxygen stoichiometry in determining the properties of high temperature oxide superconductors.
Topics of particular recent interest have been related to energy conversion and storage, including hydrogen transport and hydride formation in metals, alloys and intermetallic compounds, and various aspects of materials and phenomena related to advanced lithium batteries.
He has over 400 professional publications, including three books; "Advanced Batteries", published by Springer in 2009, "Energy Storage", published by Springer in 2010, and Energy Storage, Second Edition in 2016.
