NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation Appoints Neuroscience Expert Kip Ludwig, PhD To Chair Artificial Intelligence Advisory Board
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: NMTC), a medical technology company focused on improving surgical care options and outcomes for patients suffering from neurological disorders, announced today the creation of a new Artificial Intelligence Advisory Board, to be chaired by Kip Ludwig, PhD.
The advisory board, comprised of six additional members with experience in industry, clinical practice, medical research and the FDA, will focus on the potential use of NeuroOne’s electrode technology in artificial intelligence and bioelectronics applications. Dr. Ludwig, along with the advisory board members, will provide guidance to the Company on potential applications in translational neuroscience settings, including artificial intelligence and neuromodulation for medical applications.
“Research into the integration of humans and electronics has grown substantially in the last ten years, but more precise coordination has been fundamentally roadblocked by existing electrode technology,” said Dr. Ludwig. “The NeuroOne platform samples activity from the human brain, and early pre-clinical experience has shown that NeuroOne’s electrode technology has advanced resolution as compared to certain currently commercially available technologies. The full promise of those data can only be realized by leveraging state of the art advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning to identify new diagnostic and therapeutic targets.”
NeuroOne CEO Dave Rosa said, “Dr. Ludwig is one of the foremost experts in neuromodulation and bioelectronics. The Advisory Board’s input in the development of our electrode portfolio will be invaluable as we consider potential applications beyond the medical diagnostic and treatment settings.”
Dr. Ludwig leads the Bioelectronic Medicines Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin. The primary focus of his lab is developing next-generation neuromodulation therapies that use minimally invasive strategies to “wiretap” the nervous system. Prior to Wisconsin, Dr. Ludwig served as the Program Director for Neural Engineering at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). He co-led the Translational Devices Program at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS); led the NIH Programs under the White House BRAIN to catalyze implantable academic and clinical devices to stimulate and/or record from the central nervous system and led a trans-NIH planning team in developing the ~$250 million S.P.A.R.C. Program to stimulate advances in neuromodulation therapies for organ systems.
About NeuroOne NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation is a developmental stage company committed to providing minimally invasive and hi-definition solutions for EEG recording, brain stimulation and ablation solutions for patients suffering from Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Essential Tremors and other related neurological disorders that may improve patient outcomes and reduce procedural costs.
