Neuromodulation Therapies: Lessons from a Career in Clinical Translation

Speaker: 

Kip Ludwig, PhD

Date: 

Friday, October 29, 2021 - 12:00pm

Location: 

Via Zoom

Abstract: 

In this seminar, Dr. Kip Ludwig will discuss his practical experiences translating implantable devices to stimulate the nervous system – commonly known as neuromodulation, bioelectronic medicine or electroceutical practice – into clinical practice. From his experiences spanning industry as well as running NIH translational devices programs, he will outline key concepts often overlooked in academia that are critical in designing a neuromodulation device for market. He will also discuss his efforts leading the Wisconsin Institute for Translational Neuroengineering to create a multifaceted research environment to accelerate the path for neuromodulation devices from basic science discovery to regulatory approval and sustainable market.
