Inner Space: Bioelectronics and Medicine's Future

Friday, March 11
5:00PM - 6:00PM

JW Marriott
Room 203-204
110 E 2nd St


Imagine being able to treat diabetes or arthritis with a device as small as a grain of rice. This tiny implant would be attached to a nerve and would decipher the electrical signals your nervous system generates. Outside your body, the device could be programmed to modulate those pulses, treating your disease. No chemicals. No pills. No injections. It’s called bioelectronic medicine and it will allow for targeting specific organs instead of flooding the body with a drug that you hope will hit its target. This panel blends science and technology with engineering and venture capital in a discussion about the future of medicine and the opportunity to speak the body’s native electrical language.
