Research interests involve neural interfaces and neurotechnologies ranging from implantable devices to novel approaches for labile free assays for neuroactive compounds. My work is primarily focused on the development and demonstration of innovative materials that either enhance the coupling with neuronal tissue, show enhanced reliability, and/or reduce the deleterious effects on surrounding biotic environment.

Dr. Joseph J. Pancrazio, associate provost and professor of bioengineering at The University of Texas at Dallas, has been named vice president for research for the University.
Effective June 1, the appointment was made after a national search that attracted exceptional candidates, said UT Dallas President Richard C. Benson.
“Dr. Pancrazio has a deep understanding of the issues and opportunities that are critical to maintain and expand a dynamic university research program,” Benson said. “His expertise is especially pertinent when it comes to conducting and overseeing interdisciplinary collaboration, which is one of the hallmarks of the UT Dallas research enterprise. I look forward to working with Dr. Pancrazio as we continue to attract top faculty members into our ranks, graduate highly skilled doctoral students and increase extramural research funding.”
Neurotech Reports editor James Cavuoto said the organization looked at Pancrazio’s academic and research accomplishments, and his impact on the development and maturation of the neurotechnology industry. Neurotechnology is used to understand and influence the brain and nervous system for the purposes of improving health, education and information technology.
“With the significant research infrastructure, collaborative colleagues across multiple disciplines, and exceptional students, I look forward to contributing to the continued growth of bioengineering at UT Dallas — especially in the area of bioelectronics.”
