Dr Mikhail Korneev, Senior Engineering Project Manager
Dr. Mikhail Korneev is a Senior Engineering Project Manager at the Bionics Institute. He has a background as an engineer-physicist (MSc, Moscow Engineering Physics Institute) and in biophysics (PhD, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam).
Following his PhD, Mikhail started his industrial career at R&D department in a semiconductor industry at ASML and continued for a decade in a hearing aid component manufacturing industry at Sonion.
Mikhail is an accomplished Product Development Engineer and has substantial experience in R&D, LEAN product development, risk assessment, FMEA, and complex project management, all in compliance with ISO standardisation. He consistently has delivered product solutions.
At the Bionics Institute, Mikhail’s main goal is translational research and development with focus on delivering projects and programs from a research idea to a product solution. He brings experience of industrial LEAN development and manufacturing in compliance with QMS within ISO: 9001.
His primary interest and responsibilities include the development and delivery of the Hearing Nanotherapeutics program and the EarGenie™ medical device.
Hearing Nanotherapeutics is a major program which includes the development of a drug delivery system based on neurotrophin protein and nanotechnologies to engineer particle carriers.
The protein-carrier system can deliver protein to the inner ear where protein can protect degeneration of inner ear sensory cells.
The EarGenie™ medical device is an innovative system for personalised management of hearing impairment for life-long benefits.
