Andrea Lelli, Eric A. Stauffer and Jeffrey R. Holt, Department of Neuroscience, University of Virginia Medical School have won the $25,000 PI (Physik Instrumente) NanoInnovation Grant™ for a research proposal entitled "A Fast Mechanical Nanostimulator to Study Sensory Transduction and Amplification in the Inner Ear".
Lelli, Stauffer and Holt will build a nanostimulator using PI piezo actuators and a 3-Axis piezo nanopositioning stage (Nanocube) that can reliably stimulate sensory hair cells at frequencies up to 10 kHz with motions that range from a couple of nanometers to a couple microns. Problems with hearing and balance are the most common sensory deficits worldwide.
