Learn how our innovative early-stage research projects are laying the groundwork for future treatments.
Innovation lies at the heart of the Bionics Institute and early-stage ideation is strongly supported through the Bionics Incubator Fund (BIF).
To apply for funding, researchers pitch an idea for a new medical device or adaptation of existing technology for a different condition.
Ideas funded by the BIF have led to several successful projects, including:
Abdominal vagus nerve stimulation as a novel treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, which is detailed here, was initiated by Sophie Payne, James Fallon and Amy Morley.
Want to support our incubator research?
Early-stage research is only made possible by donations to our Bionics Incubator Fund.
Your support today could turn the seed of an idea into a new treatment in the future.
