Dear researchers and young scientists,
We are thrilled to announce the second online conference of the NeuroTech Talk series, dedicated to Implantable Brain Interfaces, co-organized by Innovation Forum Lausanne (IFL) and the Center for Neuroprosthetics (CNP) of EPFL.
Leaders from the entrepreneurial and academic worlds will present promising industrial applications, in the fields of neuroscience and neuroprosthetics. Beyond the technologies behind these applications, the speakers will describe the personal and entrepreneurial challenges they faced in their journeys, They will share their career paths, the choices that brought them where they are today and their advice for PhD students and researchers seeking a future in the medical device industry.
This session taking place on 7th April 2021 at 18:30 CET will focus on Implantable Brain Interfaces. Professor Diego Ghezzi, head of the Medtronic Chair in Neuroengineering at EPFL, will be leading the seminar and introducing the speakers:
- Carolina Aguilar, CEO & co-Founder, INBRAIN Neuroelectronics. After a career as Neuroscientist and Business Executive, she and her team now develop a high density, high resolution and graphene-based neural interface.
- Thomas Oxley, MD, PhD, founder & CEO of Synchron Inc. He conceived, developed and is now translating into clinics the StentrodeTM, a device able to record brain activity from within a blood vessel.
- Matt Angle, PhD, founder & CEO of Paradromics Inc. He and his team are working on a novel high data rate interface between brains and computers.
Registration for the conference is mandatory and can be carried out for free here. The link to access the online conference will be communicated after registration. Be sure to stay tuned for future events in this talk series.
