Sponsored by Businesswire

Technical Fellow Justin Sanchez’s presentation at the Consumer
Electronics Show (CES) on January 8 in Las Vegas will highlight
neurotechnology advances that seem futuristic but are actually happening

His speech, focused on the capability of connecting our brains and
bodies with the outside world in ways previously impossible, will take
place in the Digital Health Summit conference track at CES. Sanchez, a
Technical Fellow for Life Sciences, arrived at Battelle last year.
Formerly the Director of DARPA’s
Biological Technologies Office, he brings deep expertise in breakthrough
technologies to drive expansive growth in the organization’s
neurotechnological research and commercial products.

Battelle’s NeuroLife
program has had startling success in reanimating the paralyzed hand of a
quadriplegic man. Now, the team is poised for more dramatic success as
it develops new approaches to treat spinal cord injuries, stroke and
other movement disorders, bioelectronic medicine and related non-medical
neuro applications such as athletics and gaming.

His speech (in the Venetian, Level 4, Lando 4305 at 3:30 pm PT on Jan.
8), “Battelle’s
Grand Vision for Neurotech
,” will include a live onstage demo of
fascinating new technology. For those who cannot attend, the session will
be posted about a week later
and still photography is posted on the conference’s
Flickr account
