Neuromodulation Therapies: Lessons from a Career in Clinical Translation

Kip Ludwig, PhD
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.
