Dr. Bryn Martin is an Assistant Professor of Biological Engineering with teaching and research focus on biomedical engineering and neuroscience applications. Martin is trained as a mechanical engineer and specializes in biomechanics and physiology of the central nervous system (CNS). The aim of Martin’s research is to make discoveries about the central nervous system (CNS) physiology in health and disease that impact patient care for the millions of people affected by CNS disorders. Martin leads the Neurophysiological Imaging and Modeling Laboratory at the University of Idaho ( His research develops and applies advanced MR imaging and computational modeling techniques to investigate the pathophysiology of CNS disorders from a hydrodynamic and biomechanical perspective and develop related medical technologies. Fellows interested in careers in biomedical engineering and medicine are encouraged to apply. In particular, future doctors with specialty interest in neuroradiology, neurosurgery and neurology. Engineers with interest in biomedical instrumentation and devices.
