Neurotechnology SIG Webinar Series: Bioelectronic medicine

Event details
Thursday, 18 June 2020
10:00 am – 12:00 pm
This event will be live streamed via webcast
Overview
This webinar will provide insight into Bioelectronic Medicines from a historical perspective, to the latest developments in this area in the UK.

As part of our commitment to supporting and growing our community, the Neurotechnology Special Interest Group will be hosting a series of monthly webinars. Each webinar will focus on a new development in a different technology area and will be very interactive. You will heard from three expert speakers, each providing a unique perspective to the topic.

 

The first topic in this new series is: Bioelectronic Medicines

 

Bioelectronic medicine is an emerging field where electrical devices read and modulate signally patterns passing through the peripheral nervous system. Chronic diseases and disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, hypertension and asthma could potentially be treated using these devices. Not only will bioelectronic medicines be able to treat diseases with more precision than conventional pharmaceutical medicines, but they should also have fewer side effects and could be far more cost effective.

 

In the first in a new series of webinars brought to you by KTN’s Neurotechnology Special Interest Group, you will hear from:

  • Prof Tim Denison, University of Oxford – an historical perspective
  • Dr Arun Sridhar, Galvani Bioelectronics – a commercial perspective
  • Dr Tim Constantinou, Imperial – new advances in bioelectronic medicines
