INBRAIN Neuroelectronics wins El Periódico's innovation award for developing graphene-based brain implant technology

INBRAIN Neuroelectronics has won the Empresa + Innovadora prize from EL PERIÓDICO for its development of graphene-based chips implantable in the brain. The material, which is 200 times stronger than aluminum, flexible, and biocompatible, allows for less invasive and more effective brain implants for the treatment of neurological diseases such as Parkinson's, epilepsy, depression, and Alzheimer's. The first human clinical trial using the technology is set to begin later this year, marking the first time a graphene-based interface has been implanted in a person for high-precision tumour intervention.
