These include: the bionic senses, bionic mobility, bionic implants and organs, neurotech devices, brain-computer interfaces and neurobionic treatments for brain injury, diseases, autism and emotional disorders.

Together we can leverage our world class insights to AI, robotics, biofabrication, additive manufacture and block chain technologies).
