High risk, high reward projects
The Wyss Center researches and develops high risk, high reward technology-linked solutions to treat or diagnose nervous system disorders. We create prototype devices suitable for humans and then support initial human clinical trials to accelerate the path to commercialization.
Repairing the nervous system with technology
Neurotechnology describes devices that can interact with the nervous system. Translating neurotechnology from the laboratory into clinical and commercial products has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of neurological diseases and disorders including paralysis as a result of stroke or trauma, pain, epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, motor neurone disease, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
Creating effective neurotechnologies depends upon knowledge and skill from neuroscience, engineering and clinical medicine to recognise credible innovations, build and test prototypes then advance them to early stage human clinical trials.
This process requires clinical input, regulatory and business expertise from the very early stages to ensure sound design, feasible implementation for human use and commercial viability.
The Wyss Center combines these interdisciplinary skills with platforms equipped with state of the art infrastructure to enable the research and development needed to create and test cutting edge neurotechnology.
