In this episode, we dive into what it takes to succeed in the dynamic and complex field of neuromodulation. Dr. Telkes shares her career journey and insights, revealing the challenges and opportunities for aspiring neuroscientists and neuroengineers. We also explore the latest technological advances helping with chronic pain treatment and Parkinson's disease biomarker discovery.

Whether you're a seasoned researcher or fascinated by the mysteries of the brain, this episode will surely spark your curiosity and inspire you to reach new heights in your career in neuroscience and neurotechnologies. So sit back, relax, and join us as we explore the exciting possibilities of neuromodulation and neuroengineering with Dr. Ilknur Telkes on the Neurocareers podcast - where we dare to do the impossible!

About the podcast guest:

As an Assistant Professor at Florida Atlantic University and head of the Telkes Lab, Dr. Telkes is a trailblazer in using electrophysiological signal recordings and analysis to improve patient outcomes. Her groundbreaking work in deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, and biomarker discovery has earned her numerous accolades, including the prestigious Kumar Award at NANS.

Here is some information Dr. Telkes recommends for you:

Educational Programs and Societies: 

· I highly recommend The North American Neuromodulation Society (NANS)’s and the International Neuromodulation Society (INS)’s journal club series. These are free webinars, and you can get the chance to interact with the world’s leading scientists.

· Another platform I highly recommend is , a free platform where you can access neuromodulation events, recent updates and news in the field, find relevant information about different interventions, etc. 

· The North American Neuromodulation Society (NANS) 

· Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) – and its sections  

· International IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society  (EMBS)

· American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS)  

· International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) 

My lab is looking for talented scientists at the master's, doctoral, and post-doctoral levels with research interests in neuromodulation, electrophysiological biomarkers in humans, and neurotechnology.
