In collaboration with University of California Berkeley, Dr. Kevin Tsia, Associate Professor of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Programme Director of Biomedical Engineering Programme, was awarded a funding of over US$2 million from the BRAIN Initiative Fund of the US National Institutes of Health for a project to develop a high-speed optical imaging technology for recording fast neural activity throughout the living animal brain.

Announced by the Obama administration in 2013, the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN)® Initiative supports research to develop and to use extraordinary new technologies that will revolutionise our understanding of the brain. Through 2018, the U.S. National Institutes of Health invested over US$950 million in the Initiative, supporting over 550 funded awards.
