    Dr Christopher Proctor

    University Position
    Research Fellow


    Chris's research is focused on engineering bionic systems to improve healthcare and advance bioscience. On going project themes include: Electronic drug delivery: Targeted drug delivery can focus treatment on the region of the body affected by a given pathology thereby enhancing the effectiveness of the treatment while reducing side effects inherent in systemic treatments. We showed this to be a promising method for managing epileptic seizures. We are currently adapting this technology as a research tool to understand the brain as well as for treating disease. Minimally invasive implants: Existing clinical neurostimulation implants often require invasive surgical procedures that limit the eligible patient pool. We are developing novel device architectures and control systems that can allow for key-hole like surgery of large implants.
