About Me

Dr. R. James Cotton, MD, PhD is a Clinician-Researcher who will be joining the Center for Bionic Medicine as a lab director. Dr. Cotton recently completed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, which included an additional year integrated into his residency for research, where he developed a wearable sensor platform that records electomyography and kinematics to provide biofeedback and help guide therapies. His long-term goal is to develop neural interface technologies and translate them to people with spinal cord injury to help restore some of their lost function. Dr. Cotton received his undergraduate degrees in electrical engineering and biochemistry from Rice University and his MD/PhD, with a focus on systems neuroscience, from the Baylor College of Medicine.
