This talk will introduce the Cleveland Open Source Modular Implant Innovators Community (COSMIIC) – see cosmiic.org. The overall goal of COSMIIC is to establish an open source, modular network of active implantable devices for use in pre-clinical and early feasibility human research, and to provide ongoing support for this technology through a vibrant, sustainable community of users. The concept is based on our established platform ecosystem, the Networked Neuroprosthesis (NNP), which provides a solid technological platform with an established regulatory status for human use. The COSMIIC concept is being established through major funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) Program. The project includes a broad investigative team in Cleveland at CWRU, MHS, VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System, and the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine; as well as investigators at the University of Michigan and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Speaker(s): Kevin Kilgore Agenda: 5:30 for registration and refreshments 6pm presentation followed by questions and answers. The presentation will be livestreamed.
