A word from our CEO

Marking a new era in Australian med tech innovation, we are thrilled to welcome senior researcher Professor Max Ortiz Catalán to lead a new research stream at the Bionics Institute.

Founder and Director of the Center for Bionics and Pain Research (CBPR), a joint initiative of Chalmers University of Technology, Sahlgrenska University and Gothenburg  University in Sweden, Professor Ortiz Catalán is a world leader in bone implanted prosthetics and the development of treatments for phantom pain.

As Head of our Neural Prosthetics Research Program, he and his team aim to eliminate disability and pain for people with limb loss by combining the expertise of the Bionics Institute and CBPR.

Chronic pain is also the focus of world leading research led by Associate Professor Rachael Richardson, who has developed new technology that enables highly specific nerve stimulation by combining the use of light, electricity and genetic targeting to treat chronic conditions, such as sciatica.

We’re delighted to have commenced two first-in-human clinical trials earlier this year. We look forward to updating you on the progress of both our new and established research in the future.

We were proud to host the 2023 Bionics Institute Innovation Lecture in May. It was an enormous successattended by nearly 300 people from the med tech ecosystem.

Thank you to our kind and compassionate supporters who donate towards our research – our work would not be possible without your help.
