Bioelectronics – Sending the right signals

World’s Top 50 Innovators 2019 – 23rd to 25th September 2019

The term ‘animal electricity’ was coined by Luigi Galvani in the eighteenth century when he noted that a dead frog’s legs twitched when they were touched with metal. Galvani’s work is even said to have inspired Mary Shelley in her creation of Frankenstein. Thankfully, in more recent times, the field of bioelectronics has been applied in much more edifying ways to improve human health.

Galvani Bioelectronics, formed through a partnership between GSK and Verily Life Sciences (Alphabet), is exploring how tiny implantable devices can change precise electrical signalling in nerves to treat a range of debilitating chronic diseases. In his Codex Talk, Kristoffer Famm will explain how the interface between biology and miniaturised electronic devices has opened up new avenues to deal with intractable conditions.

We have invited a distinguished line up of scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and visionaries who are moving the world forward with the power of their technologies and ideas. Royal Society, London 23 – 25 September

About Codex

We selected the name “Codex” as Leonardo da Vinci was the embodiment of the Renaissance ideal.  His “Codex”, or notebooks, are a testament to his interest in a multitude of subjects and to visionary ideas which were centuries ahead of their time.  Codex’s mission is to evoke a similar spirit of enlightenment by inspiring technology leaders and entrepreneurs to apply their collective imaginations to deliver technologies that will continue to transform our lives. Whilst the creativity of Leonardo da Vinci was captured in his notebooks, Codex shares the wisdom of today’s great innovators via Codex Talks and events.
