Associate Professor, University of North Carolina School of Medicine

Dr. Frohlich received a degree in electrical engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, an International Diploma in electrical engineering at the Imperial College in London, and his PhD in computational neurobiology at University of California, San Diego. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Yale University where he made the breakthrough discovery that the electric fields generated by the brain represent an active neuronal communication mode. In 2011, Flavio moved to University of North Carolina to translate this discovery into novel therapeutic strategies for disorders of the brain.

Dr. Frohlich’s research focuses on the treatment of psychiatric illnesses, specifically how brain network activity can enable the development of novel diagnosis and treatment paradigms.
