the current Victorian Lions Foundation Neurobionics Research Fellow as at March 2017

The Victorian Lions Foundation provides annual funds for a Neurobionics Research Fellow to undertake research with the neurobionics research team at the Bionics Institute. The aim is to support the exploration of implant devices that monitor neural activity in the brain, spinal cord, or elsewhere in the body, and/or stimulate nerves electrically for therapeutic applications. The focus is on real world applications to alleviate common disorders like epilepsy and blackouts, movement disorders including Parkinson's disease and essential tremor, and certain severe psychiatric conditions such as obsessive compulsive disorder.
