Bioelectronic Medicine

Epicenter of the Future: Where Healthcare,
Technology & Science Converge

home Hero

Bioelectronic medicine is a scientific discipline that brings together molecular biology, neurophysiology, neurotechnology and analytics to develop nerve-stimulating technologies to regulate the molecular targets underlying disease. This approach promises to deliver therapies superior to pharmaceuticals in terms of efficacy, safety, and cost, without significant side effects.

At the core of bioelectronic medicine is the electrical signal used by the nervous system to communicate information. Virtually every cell of the body is directly or indirectly controlled by these neural signals. Bioelectronic medicine technologies can record, stimulate, and block neural signaling. Bioelectronic medicine will change the way we treat diseases, injuries and conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, paralysis, bleeding, and even cancer.

For nearly 20 years, investigators at the Feinstein Institute have leveraged internal capabilities, as well as collaborations with some of the leading forces in science, innovation, and medicine, to discover neural pathways and develop nerve stimulating technologies to treat disease.
